HAMILTON - Defensive end Eric Norwood was among 11 players released Tuesday by the Hamilton Tiger-Cats.
Norwood, 27, had seven sacks in 2015 before suffering a season-ending knee injury. Norwood spent three seasons with the Ticats, registering 123 tackles and 24 sacks.
Norwood's departure continues an off-season of change along Hamilton's defensive line as Brian Bulcke, Justin Hickman and Bryan Hall all left via free agency. But the Ticats added veteran defensive lineman John Chick as a free agent and re-signed all-star defensive tackle Ted Laurent.
Also released were linebacker Latarrius Thomas, defensive backs Darnell Burks and Mike Reives, offensive linemen Cord Howard and Terrael Williams, receivers Michael Preston, Cass White and Greg Thurmond, defensive lineman Stephen Mawa and fullback Preston Huggins.
