The Hamilton Tiger-Cats have signed American tight end Camren McDonald and American defensive back Kordell Rodgers.

McDonald attended training camp in Steeltown earlier this year but was released before the start of the regular season. The six-foot-four, 245-pound native of Long Beach, Calif. previously spent time with the Los Angeles Rams and Green Bay Packers but didn’t dress for any regular season games with either team.

Rodgers dressed for 12 games with the Montreal Alouettes in 2023, though he was cut amid training camp last month. He made nine starts at boundary cornerback and two starts at field-side cornerback last year, recording 37 tackles and two interceptions.

The five-foot-eleven, 175-pound native of Lufkin, Texas played collegiately at Texas State University before entering the professional ranks. He recorded 158 total tackles, four tackles for loss, seven interceptions, 17 pass knockdowns, two forced fumbles, one fumble recovery, and one sack over 48 games with the Bobcats.

The Tiger-Cats have also released American receiver Kaylon Geiger and American defensive back Mark Milton, the latter of whom registered one start earlier this year.

The Hamilton Tiger-Cats (0-2) will visit the Saskatchewan Roughriders (2-0) on Sunday, June 23 with kickoff slated for 7:00 p.m. EDT.
