The Hamilton Tiger-Cats have signed Canadian defensive back Jacob Dearborn and American receiver Chris Coleman.

Dearborn went unselected in the 2019 CFL Draft out of Carleton University but signed with the Saskatchewan Roughriders and recorded 18 defensive tackles, six special teams tackles, and two interceptions over two seasons with the team. The native of Yarker, Ont. did not play in the CFL in 2022 as he represented Canada at the Winter Olympic Games in Beijing in the four-man bobsleigh.

Coleman went unselected in the 2023 NFL Draft and spent time with the Miami Dolphins prior to originally joining the Tiger-Cats in September. The five-foot-eleven, 192-pound target recorded 48 receptions for 702 yards and five touchdowns over 11 games at Cal Poly University.

The Ticats also released Anthony Johnson, who joined the team last year. Over six games with the club, he recorded 15 receptions for 274 yards and one touchdown.
