HAMILTON, Ont. -- The Hamilton Tiger-Cats are heading into a new season without running back DeAndra' Cobb and linebacker Otis Floyd.
Both players were released by the CFL team on Tuesday.
Cobb was the league's fourth-best running back in 2010 with 1,173 yards and eight touchdowns. He also caught two touchdowns and had 334 receiving yards.
After signing with the Ticats in May 2009, he appeared in 35 regular-season games for the team.
Floyd had 83 tackles -- fifth best in the CFL -- and four sacks last year. He appeared in 33 games with the Ticats after signing as a free agent in January 2009.
"On behalf of the Tiger-Cats, I would like to thank DeAndra' and Otis for their contributions to this team both on and off the field," coach Marcel Bellefeuille said in a statement. "They were true professionals during their time with our organization and we wish them all the best in their future endeavours."
