Ticats sign top three 2016 CFL draft picks

FINALLY!!!!!!!!!!! :thup: :thup: :thup: :rockin: :rockin: :rockin:

[b]Offensive lineman Brandon Revenberg, running back Mercer Timmis and receiver Mike Jones have agreed to terms on three-year pacts with the Tiger-Cats.

Hamilton traded up two spots to select the big, athletic blocker No. 3 overall, then grabbed the Burlington playmaker in the second round with the 14th pick and took the speedy pass catcher at the top of the third round, 18th overall.[/b]

Agreed, I was sitting by watching all other teams lock up their picks thinking what the hell? Are we the only team that drafted all futures?
Love all 3 of these picks, hoping now this means the end of the botched Giovanni Aprile experiment.

It's good news, definitely.

While none of them will likely start in their rookie seasons, over 3 years (of their contracts) I expect good things from each.


Great Canadian signings! Rice, Girard, and Revenberg are young depth guys who can fill in along the OLine. Timmis could be another Durie at half/slot back. I honestly believed that the Argos would take him. Mike Jones could become an Andrew Grigg - type receiver in the future. He has deep speed.
The next signing that I'm anxious to see is Terrel Davis. If he's half as good as Terrel Davis, we're in for a real treat . :smiley:

Pat Lynch(the old guy)

Everybody gets signed!!! :thup:

#Ticats sign 2016 draft class. Which is nice.

wow.. how often does this happen?

I'm pretty sure that they signed all of their draft picks last season too but I could be wrong. Now that they can no longer draft "red shirts" or futures picks, signing all of a draft class is likely to be more common unless one chooses to draft a player with obvious NFL interest or, as happens on occasion, a player decides to return to school for one last year of CIS eligibility.

Mike Jones is listed as an international on the roster. Wasn't he signed as a Canadian? :?

The last time I looked 3rd round picks must be Nationals not Internationals.

BTW Ellefson is also shown incorrectly as an International (but of course he was just a 6th rounder last year, not a 3rd rounder this year). Methinks something is not right with the individual who updates the roster.

:oops: :oops: :oops:

The roster has Jones's birthplace as Bryan TX, but Justin Dunk mentions on 3DownNation that he was born in Toronto. Given that he was eligible for the CFL draft, I'm leaning towards Dunk's version.

And now we have kickers!
