- Tiger-Cats re-sign 'game-changing' Brandon Banks
The Hamilton Tiger-Cats re-signed Banks to a one-year contract last January, with head coach June Jones calling him "one of the premier playmakers in the Canadian Football League."
The five-foot-seven American player is in his sixth CFL season, all of which have been with the Tiger-Cats.
This season, Banks is tied for first in the CFL with teammate Luke Tasker in receiving touchdowns (11), and second in receptions (94) and receiving yards (1,423).
Banks also set a new club record for the most 100-plus yards receiving games in a season, the team said. His 10 beat Tony Champion's 1989 record of eight.
Banks had 94 receptions and 1,423 receiving yards this year, the team said, ranking fifth in a single season in Ticats history.
The Ticats host Ottawa on Oct. 27 at 4 p.m. ET.
