The Hamilton Tiger-Cats announced Thursday that the football club has released American wide receiver Bralon Addison so he can pursue opportunities in the National Football League. Addison was slated to become a free agent in February.

Addison, 26, started 16 games at wide receiver for the Tiger-Cats in 2019, ranking among CFL leaders in all major receiving categories, including receptions (4th – 95), yards (5th – 1,236) and touchdowns (6th – 7), as well as targets (6th – 126). The 5-9, 197-pound native of Missouri City, Texas also added 36 carries for 218 rushing yards and a rushing touchdown, and was named a CFL All-Star for the first time in his career. His 95 receptions tied Tony Champion (1989) for the sixth-best single-season total in Tiger-Cats’ franchise history.

The Calgary Stampeders have released American receiver Reggie Begelton in order to allow him to pursue an opportunity in the National Football League. The 26-year-old Beaumont, Tex., product was slated to become a free agent in February.

In 2019, Begelton was a CFL all-star and earned the Stamps’ nomination for the CFL’s Most Outstanding Player award after becoming just the fifth player in franchise history to record at least 100 catches in a season. He finished the regular season second in the league with 102 receptions and third in both receiving yards (1,444) and receiving touchdowns (10).

In 33 career regular-season games over three seasons with Calgary, Begelton had 149 catches for 2,335 yards and 12 touchdowns.
