Defensive End Davis Signs with Tiger-Cats
The Hamilton Tiger-Cats announced Wednesday the football club has signed international defensive end Ja'Gared Davis.
Davis, 28, started 17 games at defensive end for the Calgary Stampeders in 2018, posting career highs in defensive tackles (59), fumble recoveries (3) and interceptions (2) - returning one of his interceptions for a touchdown - while adding seven quarterback sacks and two forced fumbles.
Over his three-year Canadian Football League career with the Stampeders (2016-18), the 6-1, 238-pound native of Crockett, Texas has suited up in 45 games (38 starts), posting 123 defensive tackles, three special teams tackles, 23 quarterback sacks, three interceptions, six fumble recoveries, one blocked punt and two touchdowns (one fumble return, one interception return). Davis also played in six playoff games with Calgary including three consecutive Grey Cup games.
Prior to joining the Stampeders, the Southern Methodist University product signed as an undrafted free agent with the National Football League's Houston Texans in 2013. He also spent time on the practice rosters of the New England Patriots, Kansas City Chiefs and Washington Redskins from 2013 to 2015.
