Tiger-Cats Sign Cavil, Stubblefield
Hamilton, Ontario – The Hamilton Tiger-Cats announced today that they have signed import receivers Kwame Cavil and Taylor Stubblefield.
“Kwame and Taylor have both proven they’re consistent and reliable receivers,” said general manager Marcel Desjardins. “Kwame’s been a 1,000 yard receiver in this league and Taylor is still the NCAA’s all time receptions leader. There is no doubt that both of them have a tremendous opportunity to make a real impact in our offence.”
Cavil, a 6-2, 203-pound native of Waco, Texas is a five-year Canadian Football league veteran. In 49 career CFL games, the Texas product has recorded 193 receptions for 2,328 yards and 13 touchdowns.
This will mark Cavil’s second stint as a Ticat. Cavil made eight receptions for 49 yards in four games with the Ticats last season before a midseason trade sent him to the Winnipeg Blue Bombers. He made seven receptions for 107 yards and two touchdowns in two games with the Bombers, missing five games due to injury.
Stubblefield, a 6-1, 182-pound native of Yakima, Washington is also back for his second tour of duty with the Cats. The 25-year-old played three games with the Black and Gold in 2005 before signing with the St. Louis Rams after the season concluded. Prior to turning pro, Stubblefield played four seasons at Purdue where he finished his career as the NCAA’s career reception leader with 316 catches.
