HAMILTON, Ont. —No, Sam Giguere wouldn’t turn back the clock if it were an option.

“I try to look forward and not think if I could have handled things differently,” the Hamilton Tiger-Cats receiver said.

“What would you want me to change? I had a good run down south, had a few injuries there, but overall it was a great experience and coming here has been a great experience for me too.”

Rewind to 2008. Giguere was selected eighth overall by the Ticats in the CFL draft, but days later signed with the Indianapolis Colts of the National Football League. He spent the majority of four seasons on the practice squads of the Colts and the New York Giants, getting into one game with Indianapolis in 2009, when he returned five kickoffs for 122 yards.

After attending training camp with the Giants in 2011, the 28-year-old native of Sherbrooke, Que., who had a solid university career in his home town was released and subsequently signed by the Tiger-Cats in the spring of 2012.
