Demond Washington to join Ticats, Grant and Reed depart

The Hamilton Tiger-Cats have agreed to terms with free agent defensive back Demond Washington, per CFL sources.

The 28-year-old Washington has played four seasons with the Winnipeg Blue Bombers, starting 58 games, amassing 246 tackles and six interceptions.

The 5-foot-9, 176 pound Washington is also a threat as a return man, with both a punt return and a kick return touchdown in his career.

Meanwhile, a pair of former Ticats have landed with the Stampeders as veteran receiver Bakari Grant and linebacker Taylor Reed have signed in Calgary and the Ottawa Redblacks signed  defensive lineman Arnaud Gascon-Nadon. All three became free agents on Tuesday.
