The Hamilton Tiger-Cats announced that they have signed first-round pick from the 2008 Draft, receiver Samuel Giguere.
Giguere, a 5-11, 218-pound native of Sherbrooke, Quebec, has spent the last four seasons in the NFL with Indianapolis Colts and New York Giants after being selected by the Ticats with the 8th overall pick in 2008.
In three seasons at Sherbrooke, the 26-year-old caught 94 passes for 1,950 yards and 17 touchdowns. He was named a first-team all-Canadian in 2007.
“We’re thrilled to add Samuel to our team. He’s a very talented receiver who upgrades our offence and provides our roster with another great Canadian player. We’re excited to see Samuel contribute in Hamilton this season and beyond,” said head coach and director of football operations George Cortez.
Giguere joins Andy Fantuz and Dave Stala in an already deep crop of Canadian receivers.
