Ticat Transactions- July 30/07

Here are today's Ticat transactions as posted on the cfl.ca website:

"Name: 2007-07-30: Tiger-Cats Transactions:
Tiger-Cats Transactions

ROSTER 30-Jul-07

HAM ADD NIP Jordan REMPEL (OL) Saskatchewan

HAM ADD FROM INJURED NIP Eric INCE (OL) Saint Mary's

HAM DEL NIP Eric INCE (OL) Saint Mary's

HAM TFR TO RETIRED NIP Jordan REMPEL (OL) Saskatchewan

NON-ACTIVE 30-Jul-07

HAM ADD NIP Eric INCE (OL) Saint Mary's

HAM REM SGD NIP Jordan REMPEL (OL) Saskatchewan"

So in other words, Jordan Remple retired, and Eric Ince has healed and is now on the non-active roster (a step up from the practice roster). Now we can sign another player.

Does that make sense?

Your interpretation of the transactions makes sense, sigpig. Still, it is surprising that a 22 year old non-import offensive lineman would retire. Perhaps it is a way for Rempel to return to school this year without the Ticats having to release him.

From what I've heard Rempel is going back to school. With Marcoux and Dyakowski it would have been tough for Rempel to get through.
