HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - After spending six years with the CFL's Toronto Argonauts, former University of Hawaii wide receiver Chad Owens has reportedly agreed to terns with rival club Hamilton, Canada's TSN reported on Thursday.
Though he stopped short of confirming the move himself, Owens posted a Twitter message on Thursday thanking the Argonauts organization and the team's fans for their support over the years.
"There isn't [sic] enough words to express the gratitude I have for the Toronto Argonauts!" said Owens. "It would've been nice to finish what we started together and paddle my last canoe in double blue, but life has a way of teaching us lessons on a daily and we must acknowledge those lessons, learn from them and ultimately become better people from them. Thank you and we love you!"
Owens is the CFL's all-time leader in total single-season yards (including kick-off and punt return yards). He was named the league's Most Outstanding Player in 2012, when he helped lead the Argonauts to a Grey Cup championship.
