Roughriders get Bartel, Williams in trade with Hamilton Tiger-Cats

  • Print

HAMILTON - The Saskatchewan Roughriders have acquired the eighth pick in the first round of the 2014 CFL draft plus non-import punter Josh Bartel and Canadian lineman Shomari Williams in a trade that saw the Hamilton Tiger-Cats get the ninth pick and 11th overall.

Bartel, who is from Australia, punted 229 times for 9,904 yards with a 43.2 average in two seasons with the Ticats.

Williams, the first overall pick by Saskatchewan in 2010, signed with Hamilton as a free agent a year ago and had one defensive tackle and one special teams tackle in just six games with the Ticats last season.

The Roughriders acquired the 11th overall pick in an Oct. 6 trade with the Winnipeg Blue Bombers.

The Ticats now have the ninth, 11th, 17th, 44th, 52nd, 53rd and 62nd selections in this year's draft.
