The Hamilton Tiger-Cats' negotiation list got some major star power on Monday as TSN reports the club has added NFL free-agent quarterbacks Colin Kaepernick and Robert Griffin III.

Kaepernick spent his entire six-year career with the San Francisco 49ers and became a free agent when he opted out of his contract earlier in the month. He became a household name under Jim Harbaugh's coaching in the Bay area, leading the team to the 2012 NFC title. He threw for 2,241 yards, 16 touchdowns, and just four interceptions last season.

He made headlines last season for his decision not to stand during the national anthem in protest to social injustice.

Griffin was the No. 2 overall pick in the 2012 NFL Draft and promptly won Rookie of the Year for the Washington Redskins. He has battled injuries throughout his career and spent last season with the Cleveland Browns. He suffered a shoulder injury in the season opening loss to the Philadelphia Eagles and only saw time in four other contests.

While the addition of their names to the negotiation list will certainly cause a stir, it would be shocking not to see Zach Collaros under center for the club next season.
