Ticats don’t plan on re-signing Andy Fantuz

The Hamilton Tiger-Cats do not have plans to re-sign free agent Canadian receiver Andy Fantuz.

The 34-year-old played in just three games last season making six catches for 44 yards after coming back from a torn ACL suffered in October, 2016.

The Ticats have five Canadian receivers currently on the roster and plan to start only one among their seven nationals (likely Shamawd Chambers.) The team also has Mike Jones, who made 11 starts last year, newcomer Akeem Haynes (earning early rave reviews for his speed) as well as Felix Flaubert-Lussier and Giovanni Aprile.

They also have a slew of picks in the upcoming CFL Draft which has a number of quality receiving prospects. That leaves little space for Fantuz, who has played 12 seasons in the league while putting up excellent numbers.

While Fantuz could be part of the teams plans at some point – if he’s still available – the Ticats are going to go with their current talent for now.
