The QEW rivals have made a trade as the cutdown deadline looms.
Hamilton sent defensive back Abdul Kanneh to Toronto for an eighth-round selection in the 2019 CFL Draft.
The 27-year-old played in seven games making 17 tackles, two sacks, forced one fumble and knocked down one pass with the Ticats last season after signing in 2017 free agency. Kanneh won a Grey Cup with Ottawa in 2016 where he played three seasons with the Redblacks.
Over 50 CFL games, Kanneh has 155 tackles,12 interceptions, six forced fumbles and five sacks during his four seasons in the CFL. He was a CFL all-star in 2015 after recording single-season career highs in tackles (57), interceptions (6), and forced fumbles (4).
This is what a team does when they’re trying to get anything for a guy they’re about to cut. https://t.co/KT4rTN0qXS
