The Hamilton Tiger-Cats of the Canadian Football League announced Tuesday they had signed former Arkansas defensive back Kevin Richardson and former Auburn offensive lineman Avery Young.

Richardson, a former walk-on from Jacksonville who became a starter and team captain with the Razorbacks, racked up 125 tackles, 4 interceptions and 8 pass breakups during his five-year career.

The 5-11, 180-pounder had a key 22 yard-fumble return touchdown in the Razorbacks’ 38-37 comeback victory at Ole Miss in 2017.
