The Hamilton Tiger-Cats have signed Canadian defensive back Siriman Bagayogo to their practice roster.

The six-foot-two, 195-pound native of Bois-des-Filion, Que. was a second-round pick in the 2023 CFL Draft to the B.C. Lions. He dressed for 15 games as a rookie, recording six defensive tackles and three special teams tackles, though he was released at the end of training camp earlier this month.

The 26-year-old played 22 collegiate games at the University of Guelph, recording 40 tackles, two interceptions, and four pass knockdowns. He was a two-time first-team U Sports All-Canadian and two-time OUA all-star.

The Hamilton Tiger-Cats (0-1) will host the Saskatchewan Roughriders (1-0) at Tim Hortons Field on Sunday, June 16 with kickoff slated for 7:00 p.m. EDT
