Yet another former Hamilton Tiger-Cat is joining the Toronto Argonauts: sources say defensive back Rico Murray has agreed to terms with the Boatmen.
The 5-foot-11, 203 pound Murray played four-seasons with the Ticats, appearing in 50 games and making 48 starts, registering 180 tackles, nine interceptions and 11 special teams tackles. A versatile veteran, Murray can play SAM linebacker, halfback and corner. He became a free agent in February.
But he’s also been injury prone, missing 15 games over the last two seasons, including six in 2016. The team has parted ways with several players who have struggled with injuries this off-season.
Murray joins offensive lineman Peter Dyakowski, who was released by Hamilton last week and signed with Toronto the same day, and fellow defensive back Johnny Sears in trading Black and Gold for Double Blue.
Murray dropped a hint about his plans a couple of days ago…
