Ticats sign former Bombers defensive back Terrence Frederick

Hamilton has inked cover man Terrence Frederick to help their secondary.

The 27-year-old started nine games with the Winnipeg Blue Bombers last season, registering 33 defensive tackles, three tackles for loss, one interception, two pass break ups and one quarterback sack. Before his stint in Winnipeg, the 5-9, 196-pound native of Katy, Texas, played five games in the National Football League, including two with the New York Giants in 2012 and three starts with the New Orleans Saints in 2014, collecting 19 combined tackles overall. He was originally selected by the Pittsburgh Steelers in the seventh round, 246th overall, in the 2012 NFL Draft.

  1. This is a highly repetitive article for 2 paragraphs but hopefully this guy can help a secondary that needs it.

  2. Guys you really need to start proof reading, trust me not many people have the same sources you have, you’ll still break the story first but this is a sorry excuse for journalism.

  3. Why did Winnipeg let him go if he is any good ?

      Randy: according to Global News in Winnipeg, Mike O’Shea said Frederick was let go before the final pre-season game because although he did a good job, he had other players who could do the same job “and provide a little more”.
      Maybe we should do some more trades with Winnipeg and get some more of that “little more” for our secondary!

    I’m more concerned about his (lack of) height, to cover the increasing number of taller receivers around the league.

  5. Seems like we are always picking up other team’s
    castoffs. Do we have to wait for other teams or can’t we do it ourselves?

    • He might be a stop-gap measure until a couple of others are healthy enough to play?

      In this case we did “do it ourselves”. Craig Butler will be back soon…we hope. That should make a big difference to the secondary.

  6. Can’t be worse than the parade of substandard DB’s Cats seem to produce. Maybe its coaching?

  7. Terms throughout the league have been signing our castoffs for years.

    He can t be any worse then what the Cats have now

  9. Why do the Cats get many of their defensive backs from the Bombers?At the same time the Cats never succeed with them, like a pipeline disaster.
