New Receiver: Cam Echols-Luper

As noted on Instagram , the Tiger Cats have signed receiver Cam Echols- Luper to a contract. I believe he signed previously and let go.

He is a pretty good REC, hasn’t been announced by the team yet

6 foot 190 lbs and fast
He was rated 7th of 25 fastest NCAA REC’s in 2017 :o

stood stall through it all, all 10 toes down !
Thank you Hamilton Tiger-cats for this opportunity ! Best present to unravel is a contract to say the least !



Too tall.

Was on the TiCats’ PR for the full month of August '18.

Cats must see something in him that they like if they invited him back. He’ll have a bit of a head start over new recruits at training camp.

The Echols-Luper signing is confirmed on the league transactions listing - Jan. 3/19.
And, that listing on cfl.ca has a new format for the new year:

Looks like another nice receiver option for the Cats.

Following the signing of Echols-Luper, the TiCats have inked 3 more players:

LT Kevin Palmer who finished '18 as the starter at that position.

INT DB Robert Porter Jr., who played at Jackson State, was active for 5 games with WPG in ‘17, and was on, off, and back on the Cats’ PR during the latter half of last season.

INT LB Chris Frey, quite a character, whose nickname was “The Psycho” at Michigan State. Undrafted by the NFL, he was signed last spring by Carolina.

Excited to announce I have signed a contract with the @Ticats! Can’t wait to get back on the field and play some football!

Chris Frey seems like quite the beast. Very impressive play at MSU. He played SAM there and could be a great depth signing if one of our LBs goes down.

Love the Palmer signing! Looks like they’re addressing the shortages and building the team nicely.
