Cats signed new Canadian Football League QB

The Hamilton Tiger-Cats signed quarterback Kevin Eakin to a practice roster agreement Wednesday.
Eakin, a six-foot, 219-pound import, completed 105 of his 180 pass attempts for the Frankfurt Galaxy of NFL Europe last season. Eakin, 24, finished with 1,299 passing yards and 11 touchdowns in 10 games.
"We believe that Kevin possesses many of the qualities needed to be a successful quarterback in this league," Ticats head coach Greg Marshall said in a release. "He's got a great arm, quick feet and strong leadership abilities."
Eakin attended training camp with the New York Jets and was one of the team's final cuts earlier this month.
Also Wednesday, the Ticats announced that import receiver Hugh Smith and import linebacker Tony White have been released.
