The Hamilton Tiger-Cats announced today that the team has acquired import defensive back Ricardo Colclough and a sixth round draft choice in 2015 from the Edmonton Eskimos in exchange for non-import fullback Darcy Brown.
Colclough (pronounced coke-lee), a 5-11, 194-pound native of Sumter, South Carolina, joined the Eskimos on March 12, 2012. After finishing his collegiate career at Tusculum in 2003, Colclough was selected by the Pittsburgh Steelers in the second round (38th overall) of the 2004 NFL Draft. He would play 43 games for the Steelers before spending time with the Cleveland Browns, Carolina Panthers, Kansas City Chiefs as well as the UFL’s Omaha Nighthawks.
In two games with the Esks this season, Colclough has recorded six defensive tackles.
Brown suited up in 55 regular season games over four seasons in Hamilton.
The Ticats also announced that import defensive tackle Robert Rose has been released.
