The Hamilton Tiger-Cats announced the signing of four Canadians today including receiver Jordan Brescacin, linebacker Patrick Jean-Mary, offensive lineman Jason Medeiros and linebacker Louie Richardson.

Brescacin had a training camp stint with the Tiger-Cats and eight weeks on the practice roster. He was named a first-team OUA All-Star and a CIS All-Canadian with the University of Windsor in 2011 and 2012.

Jean-Mary finished his rookie season on the Ticats practice roster after registering two special teams tackles in two games.

Medeiros earned first-team OUA and CIS All-Canadian honours in his fifth and final season at McMaster this season. He spent eight weeks on the Ticats practice roster in 2012 before helping lead the Marauders to their second consecutive appearance in the Vanier Cup.

Richardson made three special teams tackles in two games during his inaugural season with the Ticats. He signed as a free agent last May after four seasons at Manitoba.
