After injuries to Williams and Saunders, Ticats sign Marquay McDaniel

Veteran receiver Marquay McDaniel is going for round two in Tigertown.

Hamilton signed McDaniel on Sunday.

The 34-year-old has played in 130 career CFL games making 554 receptions for 7,301 yards and 37 touchdowns. McDaniel spent the first three seasons of his career 2009 to 2011 as a Ticat making 137 grabs for 1,746 yards and 10 touchdowns.

He went to Calgary as a free agent in 2012 and won the Grey Cup with the Stampeders in 2014. McDaniel was named a CFL All-Star in 2013 when he recorded 76 catches for 1,047 yards and eight touchdowns.

Season-ending injuries to American pass catchers Chris Williams and Jalen Saunders meant the Ticats needed reinforcements at the receiver position.
