Riders and Ti-Cats Make Deal

Hamilton, Ontario – The Hamilton Tiger-Cats announced today that the team has acquired non-import wide receiver Adam Nicolson, a third-round selection in the 2011 CFL Draft and the rights to a negotiation list player from the Saskatchewan Roughriders in exchange for import receiver Prechae Rodriguez.

“With the emergence of a few young receivers last season and the addition of Maurice Mann to our receiving corps, we felt that we could make this move to improve other areas of our team,” said General Manager Bob O’Billovich. “Adam is a young Canadian receiver who has the ability to produce if given the opportunity and can also contribute on special teams.

”Nicolson, a 6-4, 223-pound native of North Bay, Ontario was selected in the first round (8th overall) of the 2007 CFL Canadian Draft after a standout CIS career with the University of Ottawa. The 25-year-old has recorded five receptions for 59 yards and one touchdown with the Roughriders and Lions.

What is Hamilton thinking? This is a great move for Sask. Dare I say it we have the best group of receivers in the league now. Re-sign Cates and Davis now. WOW!

With Copeland in Toronto, it is safe to say that no team has the receiving talent we have. Great trade!

Didn't the Tillman era start with a fleecing of Hamilton involving a receiver? What are the Tabbies thinking? We finally have that speed merchant on the outside. Bagg and Rodriguez outside with Getzlaf and Dressler inside. Could this spell the end of Clermont?

With or without Cates, the Riders have the best offence in the league. If they stay healthy, they will be explosive in 10.
