REDBLACKS select Walker, Delahunt & Hage in expansion draft
Earlier today, the Ottawa REDBLACKS selected three players from the Hamilton Tiger-Cats in the Expansion Draft:
First round (import players): Chevon Walker / Running Back
Walker suited up in 21 games in two seasons after signing with the Ticats on April 16, 2012, carrying the ball 148 times for 849 yards and five touchdowns while catching 41 passes for 426 yards and four touchdowns.
Second round (non-import players): John Delahunt / Fullback
Delahunt caught nine passes for 104 yards and two touchdowns in 12 regular season games during his rookie season with the Tiger-Cats. He signed as an undrafted free agent on May 28, 2013.
Third round (non-import players): Marwan Hage / Offensive Lineman
Hage played 141 regular season games in 10 seasons with the Tiger-Cats after being selected in the second round (14th overall) of the 2004 CFL Draft.
“We’d like to thank all three of these men for their contributions,” said Tiger-Cats General Manager and Head Coach Kent Austin. “Marwan’s efforts on and off of the field with this organization are well documented. He’s been a great player and an outstanding ambassador of our team throughout his time with the Tiger-Cats. He’ll be missed in Hamilton but we wish him, as well as Chevon and John, all the best in Ottawa.”
