Cats Sign Hyland

The Cats have brought in some reinforcements for their banged-up Secondary by signing former BC Lion Defensive Back David Hyland.

Hyland was let go earlier this season when BC signed former Ti-Cat Jerome Dennis after Dennis was released by the Tabbies.

Hyland will provide some much-needed depth for a Secondary that lost starter Carlos Thomas after Thomas underwent an emergency appendectomy about two weeks ago. The Secondary's play has been up and down the entire season, so hopefully Hyland can provide some stability at the back end.

It's likely that Hyland will be used on Special Teams as well. Hyland hits like a truck, and adding another hard-hitting presence to the kick-coverage unit is never a bad thing.

It'll be interesting to see how Hyland is deployed when he makes his Tiger-Cats debut.
