The Toronto Argonauts have signed receiver Brian Tyms, per sources.
The 28-year-old was released by the Tiger-Cats on Wednesday after starting seven games this season for Hamilton, recording 25 catches for 204 yards, but he was off the game day roster two of the last three weeks.
Tyms played in just two games with the Ticats in 2016 and 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 and led all receivers with eight receptions for 114 yards in the East semi-final loss to Edmonton.
The six-foot-three, 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.
