Eiben Officially a Tiger-Cat

After 11 season, Kevin Eiben has traded his Double Blue for some Black & Gold, as the team made his signing official today.

Eiben had been linked to the Cats since the opening day of free agency, and he brings a wealth of experience to his new team.

Despite where his football home was over the last decade, I have always liked Eiben. He was a great player for Toronto, and even though he is at the tail end of his career, he still has a lot left to give. He won't be a starter – the Linebacking corps is set – but he will probably see some time on Defense. Where he will make the most impact is on Special Teams.

Eiben's addition also helps Hamilton add to its Canadian depth. If Ray Mariuz retires again, Eiben can slide right into his role. If Mariuz returns, the Cats are in even better shape.

Any way you slice it, Eiben's signing is very good news.
