Dave Stala Released by Ticats, Signed by Montreal

I'm not totally surprised by the release as hometown hero Stala was on the downside of his career at 34. Did he still have enough to contribute as a Canadian backup at receiver? Who knows. The Cats are pretty flush with import receivers and with Andy Fantuz and Sam Giguerre as their non-import starters at receiver, that's enviable. They still need a valid Canadian backup though.

Incidentally I once met Stala when a friend was doing a photo shoot with him and some kids at Ivor Wynne during the off-season. Nice guy.
