The Hamilton Tiger-Cats have signed import quarterback Kevin Glenn.
Glenn has played eight CFL seasons with the Saskatchewan Roughriders and Winnipeg Blue Bombers. In 132 career games, Glenn has thrown for 20,339 yards and 109 touchdowns while adding 939 rushing yards and eight rushing touchdowns.
''Kevin's talent, experience and leadership will make him a valuable member of our team,'' said general manager Bob O'Billovich. ''He will be a great fit in our offence and will give us a better chance to win in 2009.''
The Illinois State product enjoyed his most successful season in 2007, when he was named the East Division's Most Outstanding Player and an East Division all-star after leading the league with 5,114 passing yards while also registering 25 touchdown passes.
''I'm a competitor so I want to play, but also, I'm a team guy and I want to be able to help the team,'' Glenn said of his roll in Hamilton. ''You just want to have an opportunity to compete and I think Hamilton is giving that to me.
''At the same time they've expressed that Quinton's the guy and he's a good guy. I think we have a lot of quarterback depth and when you have depth like that, you tend to win a lot more games.''
The 29-year-old Glenn is expecting to serve as a mentor to, and insurance for young quarterback Quinton Porter.
Glenn led the Bombers to a 10-7-1 record and a berth in the 2007 Grey Cup final, but was unable to play in the championship game after suffering an arm injury in Winnipeg's East Semi-Final win over Toronto.
