The best rushing attack in the CFL may get even better.

According to the Hamilton Spectator, the Hamilton Tiger-Cats have made a contract offer to free agent running back Kenton Keith, who was released by the Indianpolis Colts. League sources told the newspaper the offer is the highest to be made by any other team in the CFL.

Tiger-Cats' general manager Bob O'Billovich told the Spectator he had spoken to Keith's agent and contract discussions could begin after Hamilton's game against the Blue Bombers on Friday.

O'Billovich is not concerned with the effect Keith's addition may have on Canadian tailback Jesse Lumsden, who is scheduled to become a free agent at season's end.

"If you can upgrade your team at any position, why wouldn't you?" O'Billovich told the Spectator Friday. "It's not going to hurt us with Jesse. We've wanted to work out a system so we could get Jesse, and who ever the American tailback is, to see if we can do something with it. It's been unfortunate the last couple of weeks with Jesse's injury."

Lumsden has missed Friday's game with a nagging ankle injury that has limited his abilities for much of the season. In his stead, Terry Caulley has picked up the slack with over 400 yards in just six games.

Other teams interested in Keith's services are rumoured to be his former team, the Saskatchewan Roughriders, Calgary Stampeders and Edmonton Eskimos. Earlier this month, the Toronto Argonauts reportedly made a pitch to Keith but have since taken themselves out of the sweepstakes.

this news came out on like Tuesday

Why not sign him. If we can.
Jesse is Hamilton Football but like everyone has already stated if he is only playing a few games a year is it worth not having a #1 back for the most part of the season?
No offense to Caulley he is playing good football.
hopefully the rumours aren’t true and kenton keith is a team player and not a head case in the dressing as some are saying.

I wonder if things change with Wes Cates injury???

depends on the extent of his injury...if its a long term injury...i can definately see the riders going all out to get KK

Can we convert him to a DB? We need someone who can stop second-and-long, not another RB !

another DB? we are set at DB, i'd rather put him at DE or DT....he'd get better pressure than anybody else on the team..

uhm no buddy. on tuesday it was annouced the ticats we're intrested in KK. NOW! they've actually made a contract offer to him through his agent.
