The Hamilton Tiger-Cats have released veteran receiver Dave Stala.
The Hamilton native joined the Ticats as a free agent in 2009 and scored 20 touchdowns in 86 games for Hamilton.
During his five seasons in Black & Gold, the 34-year-old Stala recorded 263 receptions for 3,336 yards.
After starting the 2013 season on the 9-game injured list, Stala made 10 catches for 144 yards in 14 games.
Ticats general manager and head coach Kent Austin says “Dave was a respected member of this team for five seasons. On behalf of the Tiger-Cats organization, I’d like to thank Dave for his efforts on and off of the field and wish him all the best in the future.”
