The Hamilton Tiger-Cats re-signed wide receiver/kick returner Brandon Banks to a one-year contract Friday.

He had 67 receptions, 1,011 receiving yards and 11 touchdowns over 18 regular-season games last year. Banks also had 38 punt returns for 385 yards and 34 kickoff returns for 624 yards.

"Brandon has been a game changer on special teams and one of the premier playmakers in the Canadian Football League since his arrival in 2013," Ticats head coach June Jones said in a release.

"Last season, he also transformed into an explosive every-down receiver in our offence and we're thrilled to have him back as a starter in 2018."

The five-foot-seven 150-pound American is entering his sixth CFL season, all with the Tiger-Cats.
