The Hamilton Tiger-Cats have signed Canadian offensive lineman Andrew Pickett.

The native of Kitchener, Ont. was selected by the Ottawa Redblacks in the third round of the 2018 CFL Draft out of the University of Guelph. He missed his first two professional seasons due to injury and the third due to the cancellation of the CFL season amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

Pickett dressed for 13 games in 2021 and made five starts — four at centre and one at right guard. The six-foot-three, 322-pound blocker was released by Ottawa late last month.

Hamilton lost Canadian offensive lineman Kyle Saxelid to what appeared to be a leg injury this past week in Saskatchewan.
