Cats sign new DE and release Adjei

From Drew Edwards' blog:

"#Ticats sign DE Xavier Brown, release defensive back Francis Adjei (and why)

As I predicted yesterday, the Ticats have signed a defensive end, six-foot-five, 245-pound Xavier Brown. With Justin Hickman not in camp yet, the Ticats are suddenly a little thin there.

And it would appear that Adjei's Achilles is indeed torn: the Ticats released him this morning."

Hamilton, Ontario – The Hamilton Tiger-Cats announced today that the team has signed import defensive end Xavier Brown.

Brown, a 6-5, 245-pound native of Bay Shore, New York, recorded 24.5 quarterback sacks in four seasons at C.W. Post.

The team also announced that import defensive back Francis Adjei has been released."

Adjei looked like a guy that could make the team and potentially push for a starting job, I guess injuries are always going to be a part of the game. Brown must be the big looking fellow that was introduced to Obie in the stands yesterday.
