Hamilton signs K Medlock

Hamilton, ON ( - The Hamilton Tiger-Cats signed kicker/punter Justin Medlock on Wednesday.

Medlock played for Hamilton back in 2011, when he connected on 49-of-55 field goal attempts to set a new Ticats single-season record for field goal percentage (89.1 percent).

"Justin is a big addition to our football team," Hamilton head coach and general manager Kent Austin said. "He's a proven player who is familiar with our organization and has performed at a very high level."

Medlock was named the Tiger-Cats' most outstanding special teams player and an East Division All-Star in his only season in Hamilton before signing with the Carolina Panthers of the NFL on Mar. 6, 2012.

"I'm excited to return to the Tiger-Cats and to the CFL," Medlock said. "Winning is a huge priority for me, and I feel that this team is in position for long-term success. I'm looking forward to contributing in a big way in 2014 and beyond."

The 30-year-old UCLA product has connected on 96 of his 111 career CFL field goal tries.

Hamilton also re-signed kicker/punter Brett Lauther on Wednesday. Lauther hit 6-of-10 field goal attempts during his rookie campaign in 2013.
