The Hamilton Tiger-Cats have signed American defensive lineman Dylan Wynn to a two-year contract extension through the 2023 season.

He was set to become a free agent on Tuesday, Feb. 8.

The 28-year-old was named an East Division all-star for a third time in 2021 after making 30 tackles and five sacks over 12 games. He has dressed for 30 games with Hamilton over the past two seasons, making 74 tackles and 16 sacks.

Wynn broke into the CFL with the Toronto Argonauts (2017-2018) following a two-year stint with the Cleveland Browns. He played 26 games for the Double Blue, recording 64 tackles and eight sacks while winning a Grey Cup. He was briefly a member of the Arizona Hotshots of the Alliance of American Football but returned to the CFL after the upstart league folded in April 2019.

The native of Arlington, Texas attended Oregon State where he recorded 54 total tackles, 12 tackles for loss, 4.5 sacks, one interception, one knockdown, and one forced fumble as a senior in 2014. He went unselected in the 2015 NFL Draft prior to joining the Browns as an undrafted free agent.
