Beswick Gets Extended, Mullinder Signs On

Two good Canadian players were locked up by the Ti-Cats in the past 24 hours. The team inked Marc Beswick to a contract extension and signed Defensive Lineman Luc Mullinder to a two-year deal.

Beswick has been with the team since 2009 and has turned into a Special Teams ace. He currently sits third in the league in Special Teams tackles. Beswick is a good depth player, and his Special Teams contributions speak for themselves. It's nice to see a player who doesn't get much ink get rewarded for solid work.

Mullinder, who was released by the Alouettes just two weeks after he was traded to Montreal by Saskatchewan, coming to Hamilton is intriguing. He helps to buttress a Defensive Line that has been lacking depth for most of the season. Mullinder could also fill the role that was vacated by Jermaine Reid when the latter signed with the Eskimos this past off-season. With Eddie Steele playing well and Matt Kirk getting healthy, the Ti-Cats now have three very good Canadians along the Defensive Line. Signing Mullinder could turn out to be a very smart signing by the Tabbies.
