The Hamilton Tiger-Cats have signed Canadian linebacker Myles Manalo.

The six-foot-two, 230-pound native of Burlington, Ont. was a sixth-round selection in the 2021 CFL Draft out of Western. He played three games with the team as a rookie, though he did not register a statistic.

The 23-year-old was in training camp with the Ticats this season but was released following its conclusion.

Hamilton recently placed Canadian linebacker Nic Cross in the six-game injured list, which may have been a factor in the decision to bring back Manalo.
