Tiger-Cats Lock Up Knowlton

The Hamilton Tiger-Cats announced today that they have signed Linebacker Markeith Knowlton to a contract extension that will keep him in Black & Gold until 2012.

This is great, great news. Knowlton has been one of the best LBs that the Cats have had for a long while. Last season he was named a CFL All Star, and he was a major reason why the Cats played as well as they did in 2009.

Knowlton teams up with another 2009 CFL All Star, Jamall Johnson, and Otis Floyd to form one of the best Linebacking groups in the CFL.

I can't stress enough how great this signing is. Knowlton was being looked at by NFL teams this past off-season, and locking him up now avoids the risk of him leaving for the NFL until after the 2012 season. Not only that, but Knowlton is one of the best Linebackers in the CFL, and having him continue to don the Black & Gold and attack opposing QBs for the next few seasons will be a great site to behold.
