[i]The Toronto Argonauts have signed receiver Bryan 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.[/i]
He was on good terms with Argos already. Remember him laughing with some of them during Week 1 debacle. Could have been team,s number one target after Toliver went down.
Yet he found some way not to be.
Ask me that again in a couple of years once I see who they pick.
Then again, after Butler's retirement and Laurent's injury, we need a national player on the d-line more than another backup DT. And Tracy with Whitlock as his backup are a pretty good combo, and cheaper than Chick all by himself.
In Hamilton, eight games, sixteen tackles, two sacks. In Edmonton, three games, four tackles, no sacks. On average, just under two tackles per game. Hardly a game changer unless you are in the "don't hear his name because they run away from him" camp. I'm not. Gotta go with CatsFaninOttawa on this one.
At 0-8 Cats did Chick a good vet a favor by shipping him to the then undefeated Esks. A chance to chase a ring.
We can’t stop winning and they can’t stop losing ever since.
Funny how life goes sometimes.
