The Hamilton Ti-cats have announced that they have signed defensive lineman Justus Reed. Reed is a 6’3″, 280 pound player who has played for the BC Lions and Toronto Argonauts. He is expected to be a major contributor on the Ti-cats defense. “Justus brings an element of size and strength to our defensive line that we were missing,” said Ti-cats head coach Orlondo Steinauer. “He’s a player that opposing teams will have to account for on every play.” Reed is excited about the opportunity to play for the Ti-cats. “I’m really looking forward to playing in Hamilton,” he said. “The fans are passionate and the team is heading in the right direction.” The Ti-cats are in the process of rebuilding their team and Reed is a key part of that effort.
Reed joins a Ti-cats defensive line that already includes players like John Chick, Adrian Tracy, and Eric Norwood. The Ti-cats are hoping that Reed can help them improve their defense and make a run for the Grey Cup. “Justus is a big, physical player who can disrupt the offense,” said Austin. “We’re excited to have him on our team.”
