The Hamilton Tiger-Cats have signed American receiver Terry Godwin to a one-year contract extension through the 2024 season, per sources.

The 27-year-old made 68 receptions for 864 yards and six touchdowns in 2023, his first as a regular starter for the Ticats. He can get open without the waggle, playing primarily boundary receiver in Steeltown.

The University of Georgia product was selected in the seventh round, 237th overall during the 2019 NFL Draft. He made three catches for 32 yards and earned $912,424 while playing for the Carolina Panthers and Jacksonville Jaguars.

The five-foot-11, 185-pound Godwin played 54 games in the Southeastern Conference with the Bulldogs from 2015 to 2019. During his NCAA career, he had 133 receptions for 1,788 yards and 11 touchdowns. He finished ranking 11th in school history in career receptions and 13th in receiving yards.

Godwin has one career 100-yard game in Canada and it seems as if there are more in his future.
