Brandonite Landon Rice enjoyed his first year with the Hamilton Tiger-Cats and he’s planning stay with the team for a few more.

The 25-year-old Crocus Plains graduate signed a two-year deal plus an option with the Canadian Football League’s defending East Division champions on Thursday. The 6-foot-6, 315-pound offensive lineman spent all of last season on Hamilton’s practice roster and was identified by general manager/head coach Kent Austin as one of the young offensive linemen that he’s "pretty high on" during a media scrum following the Ottawa Redblacks expansion draft. The Ticats lost Marwan Hage, a 10-year veteran on the offensive line, in that draft.

Prior to joining the Ticats as a free agent this season, Rice spent five years with the University of Manitoba Bisons, helping them win a Vanier Cup in 2007. He captained the Bisons in 2011 and 2012.

He got his start in football at the age of 12 with the Westman Youth Football Association before joining the Plainsmen’s nine-man football team as an offensive and defensive lineman. He also helped Team Manitoba capture the Football Canada Cup in 2005.
