HAMILTON — The Hamilton Tiger-Cats signed quarterback Bryant Moniz and offensive linemen Casey Blaser and Wil Freeman on Thursday.

All three players are Americans.

Moniz, 29, has appeared in 38 career CFL games with the Calgary Stampeders (2014-15) and Saskatchewan Roughriders (2016) as a backup and short-yardage quarterback. The six-foot, 205-pound Moniz has completed 2-of-4 passes for 29 yards and a TD while rushing for 109 yards and six touchdowns in 37 carries.

He was a member of Calgary’s 2014 Grey Cup championship team.

Blaser, 24, spent just over two weeks on Hamilton’s practice roster at the end of last season after attending minicamp with the NFL’s Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Detroit Lions.

Freeman, 23, signed as an undrafted free agent with the NFL’s Atlanta Falcons on May 1, 2017 but was released during training camp.
