"This trade enabled
us to address our primary objectives, which is to add to our Canadian depth,
our receiving depth and our options at quarterback," said Ticats general
manager Marcel Desjardins. "We're thrilled to be able to make these
additions without removing anyone from our existing active roster, making our
football club much stronger today than it was yesterday."
Alston, a 6-0, 210-pound
native of Newark, New Jersey appeared in seven games with the Eskimos last
season, making 23 receptions for 261 yards. The East Carolina product
also returned three punts for 16 yards.
Prior to joining the
Eskimos, Alston spent time with the NFL’s Cleveland Browns and NFL Europe’s
Berlin Thunder. In nine games with the Browns in 2004, Alston returned 46
kickoffs for 1,016 yards and a touchdown.
Bisaillon, a 5-11,
199-pound native of La Tuque, Quebec attended training camp with the Eskimos
last season after being drafted in the firth round (42nd overall) of the 2006
Canadian College Draft. Before turning pro, Bisaillon spent four years at
Laval as a running back where he rushed for 1,489 yards on 212 carries in 30
games. He also played a key role on Laval’s special teams.
“The reality is that we
want good character people who want to be part of building a championship
caliber team and we measure all of our players for the ability to help us
achieve that goal,” said Ticats president Scott Mitchell. “In this
particular case, we determined that we could move a player who would not be
able to help us achieve our goal in return for four assets that as a whole will
significantly help the football team with its ultimate quest, which is to bring
the Grey Cup back to Hamilton. It is a tremendous trade for us as an
organization and makes us better in several significant areas as we continue to
improve our on-field performance."
