The Hamilton Tiger-Cats have signed former NFL linebacker Corey Thompson.

The 27-year-old has been moved to the suspended list while he completes his quarantine period.

Thompson appeared in 18 NFL games with the Buffalo Bills over two seasons from 2018-2019. He registered 19 total tackles and one forced fumble.

The six-foot-one, 222-pound native of Missouri City, TX signed as an undrafted NFL free agent with the Bills after playing parts of six seasons at Louisiana State University from 2012-2017.

With the Tigers, Thompson suited up in 44 games overall at both linebacker and safety, registering 109 total tackles, 7.5 tackles for loss, six quarterback sacks and three passes defended. He was forced to redshirt his junior and senior seasons due to injury.
