The Canadian Football League’s Hamilton Tiger-Cats recently announced they have re-signed former Ohio State wide receiver DeVier Posey to a one-year deal, replacing the contract the two sides signed prior to the cancelled 2020 season.

Posey, who was selected by the Houston Texans in the third round of the 2012 NFL Draft, has spent the last four seasons in the CFL with the Toronto Argonauts (2016-17), British Columbia Lions (2018) and Montreal Alouettes (2019). He’s caught 144 passes for 2,080 yards and 30 touchdowns, including seven receptions for 175 yards in the Argonauts’ Grey Cup victory in 2017, after which he was named the game’s most valuable player after he set a Grey Cup record with a 100-yard reception. 

Posey also brief stints with the NFL’s New York Jets, Denver Broncos and Baltimore Ravens. He caught just 22 passes in the NFL for 272 yards.
