The Hamilton Tiger-Cats have made a bevy of roster moves as veterans report to training camp today.
The Ticats have signed import defensive ends Jermaine McElveen and Matt Oh, import defensive back DeWayne Lewis, import running back James Berezik and non-import fullback Samuel Fournier.
McElveen, a 6-4, 250-pound native of Chicago, Illinois, has spent the last four seasons with the Montreal Alouettes, recording 78 tackles, 10 sacks and five forced fumbles in 52 games.
He earned Grey Cup rings with Montreal in 2009 and 2010.
Oh, a 6-2, 225-pound native of Coppell, Texas, made 75 tackles and six tackles for a loss at Dartmouth.
Lewis, a 5-11, 194-pound native of Lubbock, Texas, gained experience with the NFL's Cincinnati Bengals and Jacksonville Jaguars after making 199 tackles and six interceptions at Southern Utah.
Berezik, a 5-11, 210-pound native of Fraser, Michigan, set Grand Valley State's career rushing yards record with 3,630 over three seasons, along with 33 total touchdowns.
He was named the GLIAC Offensive Back of the Year and earned first-team All-GLIAC status in 2009.
Fournier, a 6-0, 230-pound native of Lacolle, Quebec, returns for his second stint with the Ticats after being selected by the Black and Gold in the third round (19th overall) of the 2010 CFL Draft.
Fournier spent a majority of the 2010 season on the Ticats practice roster before being claimed by the Edmonton Eskimos in October.
He spent the entire 2011 season on the injured list.
Hamilton has also released import quarterback Sedrick Harris, along with import defensive backs Justin Boddie and Shawn Abuhoff.
Import running back Alex Henderson and import offensive lineman Branndon Braxton have been placed on the suspended list.
The Ticats have also added import running back Terry Grant to the nine-game injured list.
Grant suffered a gruesome broken ankle versus Montreal on October 16.
