The Hamilton Tiger-Cats have released defensive tackle Lee Autry II.

The six-foot-two, 305-pound defensive lineman has been with the team for two seasons, making his debut in Week 2 of 2021. He would go on to dress for four regular-season games that season without recording a mark on the stat sheet, while also suiting up in the East Semi-Final and the Grey Cup.

Autry has spent most of 2022 on the Ticats’ practice roster, dressing for two games. He has recorded two tackles, both of which came in Week 16 against Montreal.

Prior to the CFL, Autry played college football at Mississippi State University. He had brief stints with the Chicago Bears, Los Angeles Chargers, and Las Vegas Raiders before coming north.

Hamilton (4-10) is scheduled to host the Saskatchewan Roughriders (6-9) on Friday, October 7 at 7:30 p.m. EDT.
