Is this ex-Argo the future of our kicking game?  Can't remember how he did on our field.

Experienced canadian better than going import or auditioning rookies which runs the risks of game-costing mistakes. Team can hit the road running.

Only National kicker that does all 3 kicking duties is a major bonus.

Brett Maher is available...so was Swayze Waters until recently....

Totally agree with you. I would rate this acquisition very highly. Great move by management. Welcome to the Ticats Lirim!

Agree with you Steve! I was hoping the Ticats would sign him last time he hit FA and Medlock departed for the 'Peg and maybe they tried but TO beat them to it.  Anyway he's almost a local guy, said he already practices quite a bit in Hamilton so I wouldn't be surprised if he fills the kicking role on the team long term - assuming he has no injury or performance problems.  He had a rough second year in the 'Peg but seems to have been pretty solid the past couple of years in TO.  I watched  him kick the winning FG at the GC in Ottawa too!  :D

I am happy,till he misses. lol

I'm told that his family lives in St. Catharines....

Even if he doesn't have the top-end FG range of a guy like Medlock, he removes any uncertainty around the kicking game. Since he does all three kicking jobs, it frees up a roster spot that would otherwise be "wasted" on a punting specialist. That roster spot can be used for depth at another position and special teams. And while Hajrullahu doesn't count toward the 7 non-import starters, he also doesn't tie up one of the (maximum) 20 import roster spots.

We're in this scenario:
1 non-import kicker
3 qbs
20 other non-imports
20 imports

instead of this:
1 import kicker
3 qbs
21 non-imports
19 other imports

or this:
2 non-import kickers
3 qbs
19 other non-imports
20 imports

or this:
1 import kicker
1 non-import kicker
3 qbs
20 other non-imports
19 other imports

or this:
2 import kickers
3 qbs
21 non-imports
18 imports

Who would the backup kicker be if Lirim is injured?

My guess would be Lussier who took over kicking duties in the game that Castillo got injured .

And maybe Masoli to punt occasionally? ;)

 Is Castillo's injury career ending ? 

 Anybody have knowledge on the extent of the injury .

Itz obviously not good for Castillo given Lirim’s signing. Hope he recovers and continues on with football.
