Brandon Banks, Tiger-Cats Agree To Mutually Part Ways

On Thursday, a surprising announcement came from Hamilton, when it was revealed that former CFL MOP and four-time All-Star Brandon Banks would not be returning in 2022. 

Banks had originally been with the team since 2013, and over eight seasons, caught 422 passes for 5,678 yards and 44 touchdowns. He holds the Tiger-Cats’ record for receptions in a single season (112), career kickoff return yards (3,773), and career punt-return yards (3,049). 

Banks had a rough campaign in 2021, missing four games and dealing with multiple injuries. Statistically, it was his worst season since 2016. Now, the 34-year-old will look to sign elsewhere, assuming retirement isn’t part of the plan. Head coach Orlondo Steinauer, who has held multiple roles with the franchise since Banks first arrived, called him “one of the most dynamic and impactful players” in Canadian football. 

While Banks will no longer wear the black and gold, his accomplishments will never be forgotten. He’s one of the greatest players in team history, and wherever he ends up next, we wish him the best of luck.
