Lumsden returns to Canadian Football League

Jesse Lumsden will be playing football in his own backyard for at least the next season and a half.
As expected, the Burlington-raised running back came to terms yesterday on a contract for two years plus an option with the CFL's Hamilton Tiger-Cats, who are expected to announce the signing today.
The new pact would see Lumsden complete the 2006 season with the 2-11 Ticats as well as the 2007 campaign.
"I'm very happy to be here," Lumsden said last night. "This is home for me."
Lumsden, who will be at practice today and may return kickoffs in Saturday's game, was cut by the NFL's Washington Redskins last month
