The Hamilton Tiger-Cats re-signed American defensive back Richard Leonard.

Leonard, 27, has appeared in 31 career games over two seasons with Hamilton. He has registered 123 tackles, one special-teams tackle, eight interceptions, one forced fumble and three fumble recoveries.

Despite playing in just 13 games last year, Leonard was tied for second in the CFL with 10 pass knockdowns. He was an East Division all-star in 2017 and Hamilton's top rookie.
