The Hamilton Tiger-Cats today acquired the playing rights to middle linebacker Jason Lamar from Edmonton and the Eskimos second round pick (fourteenth overall) in this year's Canadian College Draft. In return, Edmonton gets Hamilton's second round pick, tenth overall, in this year's draft.

"We've been working on this for a long time," said Hamilton head coach Greg Marshall. "The acquisition of Jason really solidifies our defence."
