After five great seasons in Calgary, the CFL’s most accurate kicker has found another home.
It just so happens this one is closer to home.
A CFL source has confirmed Sandro DeAngelis will sign with the Hamilton Tiger-Cats, and the move could be announced Monday morning. The deal is not official and is still subject to league approval.
DeAngelis became a free agent Feb. 15 when the Stamps failed to get him under contract, but this move brings the 28-year-old, his wife Cassi and
10-month-old son Max closer to his family in Niagara Falls, Ont.
The Nebraska product spent the off-season searching for an NFL job and actually had two workouts — with the Dallas Cowboys and Atlanta Falcons — but offers didn’t emerge. It appears DeAngelis has put the dream of playing for an NFL team behind him.
