Defensive Back Washington Re-Signs with Tiger-Cats
The Hamilton Tiger-Cats announced Friday that the football club has re-signed international defensive back Demond Washington.
Washington, 30, started seven games for the Tiger-Cats in 2017, posting 32 defensive tackles, one quarterback sack, one forced fumble and two pass knock downs. The 5-9, 178-pound native of Tallassee, Alabama, also returned one punt for nine yards and four kickoffs for 72 yards (18.0 avg.) last season. He originally signed with the Tiger-Cats as a free agent on February 11, 2016, but missed the 2016 campaign due to a knee injury suffered in training camp.
In 74 career CFL games with the Winnipeg Blue Bombers (2012-15) and Tiger-Cats, Washington has accumulated 268 defensive tackles, 11 special teams tackles, six quarterback sacks, six interceptions, seven forced fumbles and three fumble recoveries. The Auburn University product has also returned 79 punts for 795 yards (10.1 avg.) with three touchdowns, and 88 kickoffs for 1,765 yards (20.1 avg.) with one touchdown.
