CALGARY - The Calgary Stampeders brought Milt Collins back from Moncton, N.B., only to ship him to the Hamilton Tiger-Cats.

The Ticats acquired the fourth-year defensive back from the Stamps in exchange for local product Jadon Wagner, who is finishing up his senior season at BYU.

Wagner, who was a sixth-round choice for the Ticats in this year’s entry draft, is a starting linebacker for NCAA’s college football’s BYU Cougars this season.

The CFL teams also flipped 2013 draft picks in the deal.

Collins has been a healthy scratch for most of this season once Demetrice Morley took over for him at the safety position. He spent three seasons at safety before moving to halfback last season.

In going to Hamilton, Collins is reunited with former Stampeders defensive backs coach Corey Chamblin, who is now the defensive co-ordinator for the Tiger-Cats.
