The Hamilton Tiger-Cats have re-signed CFL all-star receiver Tim White, per sources. It’s a two-year contract through the 2025 season.

White was among the league’s highest-paid receivers in 2023, earning $213,100. He had been asking for $300,000 per year on his new agreement. Although, according to sources his fresh pact came in around $220,000 and $235,000 on the books.

The 29-year-old posted 75 receptions for a career-high 1,269 yards and eight touchdowns last year, leading the league in receiving yards and second-down conversions. He was named a CFL all-star for the second consecutive year and an East Division all-star for the third straight season.

White became a household name across the country in 2022. He caught 94 passes for 1,265 yards with eight touchdowns in 17 games, earning CFL all-star status while leading the three-down league in receptions and targets (145), ranking fourth in yards and tied for fifth in touchdown catches.

The Santa Clarita, Calif. native led the Ticats in receptions (56) and receiving yards (774) during the pandemic-shortened 2021 season while scoring two touchdowns in 13 games. His performance garnered him an East Division all-star nod after finishing sixth in the league in receiving yards during the truncated campaign.

Through three seasons and 47 games in the CFL, the five-foot-10, 185-pound pass catcher has 225 receptions for 3,308 yards, averaging 14.7 per catch, with 18 touchdowns.

The Arizona State University product was signed by Baltimore as an undrafted NFL free agent in 2017. He spent parts of two seasons with the Ravens and had stints with the New York Jets and New Orleans Saints, earning $561,905 south of the border.

White has Olympian-level athleticism and provides Bo Levi Mitchell with a bonafide No. 1 target.
