The Hamilton Tiger-Cats have re-signed national offensive lineman Kay Okafor to a two-year contract through the 2021 season. 

Okafor appeared in all 18 regular season games with three starts at both guard and tackle for the Ticats in 2019. The six-foot-three, 281-pound native of Enugu, Nigeria also suited up in both of Hamilton’s playoff games, including the 107th Grey Cup in Calgary.

The 26-year-old Okafor has appeared in 27 career Canadian Football League games over three seasons in the Hammer (2017-2019). He was selected by Hamilton in the third round, 21st overall, in the 2017 CFL Draft.
