Tiger Cats re-sign wide receiver DeVier Posey

The Hamilton Tiger-Cats are bringing back wide receiver DeVier Posey of Cincinnati, Ohio, who will remain in the Canadian Football League’s East Division. Posey initially signed with the Tiger-Cats on February 12, 2020, but the 2020 CFL season was wiped out because of coronavirus, and Posey never had a chance to play with Hamilton a year ago, according to cfl.ca.

The Tiger-Cats become Posey’s fourth CFL team. He has previously played with the Toronto Argonauts, British Columbia Lions, and Montreal Alouettes.

The Ohio State product last played for the Alouettes in 2019, and had 50 catches for 780 yards and three touchdowns. Also in 2019, Posey had the best game of his CFL career on August 17, in a 40-34 Alouettes win over the Calgary Stampeders. Posey had 10 catches for a career-high 181 yards.

There is no doubt Posey loves playing the Stampeders. On November 26, 2017, Posey was also an integral part of the Argonauts team that won the Grey Cup. In a 27-24 win over the Stampeders, Posey not only became a Grey Cup champion, but was the Grey Cup most valuable player as well. Posey had seven catches for 175 yards and one touchdown, and in the second quarter, was on the receiving end of a 100-yard reception from Ricky Ray, the longest touchdown catch in Grey Cup history.
