Hamilton Tiger-Cats re-sign quarterback Jermiah Masoli

HAMILTON — The Hamilton Tiger-Cats have re-signed quarterback Jeremiah Masoli, one day after trading Zach Collaros to the Saskatchewan Roughriders.

Masoli made 10 starts last season and saw action in every game, registering 249 completions on 391 pass attempts for 3,177 yards, 15 touchdowns and five interceptions.

In five seasons with the Ticats, the 29-year-old native of San Francisco has passed for 6,325 yards, rushed for 771 yards and posted 45 touchdowns

Hamilton finished out of the playoffs last season at 6-12-0.

Moving Collaros to Regina for a second-round draft pick shed salary for the Ticats and added to their stockpile of draft choices.

The Ticats also have former NCAA star QB Johnny Manziel on their negotiation list, with a green light from the CFL to sign him.
