The Argonauts have signed an accomplished athlete, but all they ask is that he catches the football.

Wide receiver Brandon Rideau, who was a quarterback, receiver, basketball and track star while growing up in Texas, inked a contract with the Argos on Friday.

Rideau spent four years as a receiver at the University of Kansas, graduating in 2004 with 131 career catches, two shy of the school record.

The 6-foot-4, 27-year-old dressed in two games for the NFL's Chicago Bears in 2008 and last year was among the final cuts by the Bears. Rideau also has attended camp with the Cleveland Browns.
