The Hamilton Tiger-Cats have released the following players today:

INT OL Everett Benyard
INT WR Lamont Bryant
INT WR Cary Koch
INT DB Taylor Mack
INT DL Adewale Ojomo
INT RB Sam Ojuri
INT LB Jonathon Sharpe
INT DL Brandon Thurmond
INT DB E.J. Woods

From Drew Edwards

The biggest name on the list is receiver Cary Koch, who was signed as a free agent from Edmonton last off-season. He made just 14 catches for 215 yards and was benched after fumbling away a punt return in Montreal on Sept. 9 and never made it back into the line up.

The team liked what it saw from American receivers Tiquan Underwood and Terence Tolliver at mini-camp and their entry-level contracts are more cap friendly than the veteran Koch’s.

Thurmond earned a starting job in week two last season but suffered a season-ending injury in the second quarter while Ojuri played in one game last season. The rest were released after their performance at mini-camp this week.

I believe Koch was in the 6 figure salary range as he was a sought after free agent when signed a 2 year contract last season
