Argo receiver Copeland retires after 11 years

TORONTO – Toronto wide receiver Jeremaine Copeland is retiring after 11 seasons to become an assistant coach with the rival Hamilton Tiger-Cats.

The two-time CFL all-star started with the Montreal Alouettes in 2002 before joining Calgary in 2005 and Toronto in 2010.

He also spent time in the NFL with the Tennessee Titans and Dallas Cowboys, and won an XFL championship with the Los Angeles Xtreme in 2001.

The 34-year-old Copeland, the Argos’ leading receiver last season, caught 622 CFL passes for 10,037 yards.

The Argo co-captain leaves the game as the CFL’s 15th-leading receiver all-time. He is also just the 15th player in league history to haul in passes for more than 10,000 yards in a career.
