Ottawa adds veteran Canadian Football League Tackle

The Ottawa Renegades bolstered their defensive line Saturday by adding veteran tackle Johnny Scott on Saturday.
Ottawa claimed Scott, a 12-year CFL veteran, off waivers last week from the Hamilton Tiger-Cats. The six-foot-two, 270-pound tackle signed with the Renegades on Saturday morning before practising with his new team.
Ottawa becomes the fifth CFL team that Scott, 36, has suited up for. He began his pro career with the now defunct Shreveport Pirates in 1994 and has also played for B.C., Toronto and Hamilton.
Scott started 16 games with Hamilton last year, registering four sacks and 33 tackles.
"We know he can play and now he has to get the system down," said Joe Paopao, Ottawa's head coach and general manager.
Ottawa's final pre-season game will be Thursday at home to Montreal. The Renegades defeated the Alouettes 27-16 in exhibition action last week
