Hinds had one defensive tackle and two more on special teams in three games this season. He appeared in 74 games with Hamilton, registering 72 tackles, 12 special-teams tackles, 11 pass knockdowns and an interception.
The six-foot-one, 212-pound Rosamonda appeared in one game with Hamilton after signing with the CFL club July 25.
