The Ticats have signed American receiver Tommy Streeter.

The 26-year-old Streeter was sixth round draft pick of the Baltimore Ravens in 2012 and has also spent time with the Buffalo Bills, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Jacksonville Jaguars (where he played two games in 2014) before spending the last two seasons with the Miami Dolphins.

Streeter played his college football at the University of Miami and in 30 games between 2008 and 2011 he recorded 52 receptions for 967 yards and nine touchdowns.

At 6-foot-5, 215 pounds, Streeter has both size and speed, running a 4.4 in the 40-yard dash at the NFL combine. Sources say the Ticats have had him on their negotiation list for more than a year.

Expect Streeter to push Terrence Toliver and Tiquan Underwood at the boundary receiver position.

The Ticats have also released defensive back Quinton Pointer and defensive tackle Terry Redden. Pointer started seven games this season at the boundary corner but struggled at times was replaced by Brandon Sermons last week against Saskatchewan.
