HAMILTON, Ont. - The Hamilton Tiger-Cats will have to wait to get defensive tackle Linden Gaydosh into their lineup.

The first overall pick at this month's CFL draft has signed as a free agent with the NFL's Carolina Panthers.

Gaydosh's agent, Darren Gill, announced the signing on Twitter on Sunday.

The six-foot-three, 314-pound Gaydosh signed the NFL deal after attending the Panthers' rookie camp over the weekend as an undrafted free agent.

Gaydosh, who played collegiately at the University of Calgary, is the latest Canadian to ink an NFL deal.

Regina defensive tackle Stefan Charles and McMaster offensive lineman Matt Sewell (both with the Tennessee Titans), Eastern Michigan defensive lineman Andy Mulumba (Green Bay Packers) and Wagner linebacker C.O. Prime (Indianapolis Colts) all signed with their NFL clubs prior to the CFL draft.
