Canadian Football League teams swap receivers

The Hamilton Tiger-Cats and Winnipeg Blue Bombers swapped wide receivers Tuesday.
The Ticats traded import receiver Chris Brazzell to the Bombers in exchange for non-import receiver Kamau Peterson. Peterson had 15 receptions for 218 yards in seven games for Winnipeg this season. In 68 career CFL games, the six-foot-one, 210-pound Peterson has 192 catches for 2,605 yards and 12 touchdowns.
"This is a league where you need a strong Canadian contingent," Ticats head coach Greg Marshall said in a release. "We believe we are getting a guy with a lot of potential that can be an impact player for us. Peterson has a lot of speed and can be a big play receiver."
The six-foot-two, 199-pound Brazzell had 22 catches for 252 yards and two touchdowns in six games for Hamilton this season.
Brazzell, in his fifth CFL season, was a standout with the B.C. Lions before joining the Ticats as a free agent this past February. In 2004, he had 49 catches for 906 yards and eight touchdowns in 16 games with the Lions.
