The Toronto Argonauts have signed Canadian receiver David Ungerer III and American quarterback Cameron Dukes.

Ungerer III was selected 11th overall in the second round of the 2019 CFL Draft by the Hamilton Tiger-Cats, spending the past three years with the club. In 38 career games, the 27-year-old has notched 33 receptions for 456 yards and two touchdowns, setting a new career-high with 225 yards a season ago. 

The five-foot-10, 171-pound speedster spent five collegiate seasons at the University of Idaho. In 34 games with the Vandals, he caught 116 passes for 1,225 yards and 10 touchdowns, earning a third-team All-Big Sky selection as a senior and honourable mention status as a kick returner.

Dukes played four seasons at Lindsey Wilson College in the NAIA, becoming the most prolific passer in Blue Raiders history. The six-foot-one, 205-pound signal caller was a three-time NAIA All-American and three-time Mid-South Conference offensive player of the year while throwing for 10,439 yards, 114 touchdowns, and just 21 interceptions. He also rushed for 1,944 yards and 34 touchdowns in 49 career games, helping lead the team to a national championship during the 2021 spring season. Dukes was named a finalist for the William V. Campbell Trophy, awarded to the top football student-athlete in the nation.

The 24-year-old signed with the Vegas Knighthawks of the Indoor Football League in 2022. In eight games, Dukes threw for 1,103 yards, 27 touchdowns and five interceptions, while rushing for 101 yards and three scores on the ground.
