The Toronto Argonauts have signed American defensive lineman Ralph Holley and American defensive back Amani Dennis.

Holley played with the Philadelphia Stars this past season and made three tackles along the way. The six-foot-one, 285-pound defender previously spent five seasons at Western Michigan where he recorded 138 tackles, 45.5 for loss, and 20.5 sacks over 50 games for the Broncos.

Dennis played alongside Holley on the Stars and made 72 tackles and five interceptions over 20 games with the team. The 26-year-old native of Illinois played at Carthage College in Wisconsin for four seasons where he recorded 100 tackles, 11 interceptions, and 33 pass knockdowns over 29 career games.

The Argos have also signed Canadian receiver David Ungerer III and Canadian defensive back Josh Hagerty to contract extensions. As per 3DownNation reporter John Hodge, Ungerer’s extension is a two-year deal, while Hagerty’s is for one.

Ungerer III was a second-round pick in the 2019 CFL Draft out of the University of Idaho. He spent four years as a member of the Hamilton Tiger-Cats before signing with the Argonauts as a free agent. He has dressed for 17 games this season and recorded 35 receptions for 491 yards and three touchdowns, all of which are new career highs.

Hagerty was a sixth-round pick in the 2021 CFL Draft out of the University of Saskatchewan. The Regina native has played 17 games and made 23 defensive tackles, 16 special teams tackles, and one forced fumble. He has dressed for only three games this season due to injury.
