The Hamilton Tiger-Cats have signed American quarterback Jamie Newman.

The 24-year-old Newman spent time with the Philadelphia Eagles in 2021 after signing with the team as an undrafted NFL free agent.

The six-foot-four, 230-pound native of Graham, NC played 19 games over three seasons (2016-2019) at Wake Forest University after redshirting his freshman year. As a Demon Deacon he completed 306-of-506 passes (60.5 percent) for 3,959 yards with 35 touchdowns and 16 interceptions also adding 245 carries for 826 yards and 10 rushing touchdowns.

Following his three seasons at Wake Forest, Newman transferred to the University of Georgia in 2020 but opted out of the season due to the coronavirus pandemic.
