HAMILTON – Chad Owens is back with the Hamilton Tiger-Cats.

The Ticats added the CFL’s most outstanding player from 2012 to their practice roster on Tuesday.

The 36-year-old Owens played for the Ticats in 2016 before joining the Saskatchewan Roughriders last year. He was cut by Saskatchewan in training camp.

Owens’ best year, including his MOP campaign, came with the Toronto Argonauts from 2010-15. The Hawaii native broke into the CFL with the Montreal Alouettes in 2009.

Owens has 16,698 all-purpose yards and 37 touchdowns in his career.

Owens is the second veteran receiver to be added to the Ticats’ practice roster in the past two days. On Monday, Hamilton signed ex-Calgary Stampeder Marquay McDaniel.
