The Hamilton Tiger-Cats acquired import defensive end Brandon Peguese from the BC Lions in exchange for future considerations on Monday.
Peguese was a late addition at the Lions' training camp this past June and was placed on the club's practice roster to start the season. He appeared in seven of the Lions' 10 games this season, notching four defensive tackles, three special teams tackles and one quarterback sack.
Peguese signed with the Lions as a free agent on June 16, 2012, after previously spending time with the NFL's Indianapolis Colts and Philadelphia Eagles.
In four seasons (2007-10) at Hampton, Peguese recorded 179 tackles and 18 quarterback sacks, earning FCS All-American and first team All-MEAC honours in 2010.
