Ticats sign receiver Brian Tyms to extension

The Hamilton Tiger-Cats have signed receiver Brian Tyms to a contract extension through 2018.

Tyms, 27, played in just two games with the Ticats last season but showed plenty of promise after signing in late October. He had four catches for 33 yards and a touchdown in the regular season finale against Montreal, then led all receivers with eight receptions for 114 yards in the East semi-final loss to Edmonton.

The 6-foot-3, 204-pounder  appeared in 18 career NFL games (two starts) with the Cleveland Browns (2013) and New England Patriots (2014-15), registering seven receptions for 94 yards and a touchdown.

Tyms saw action in one postseason contest in 2014 and was a member of New England’s Super Bowl XLIX championship team.
