Current Tiger-Cats DB Kameron Kelly Interested In Pursuing NFL Opportunities

As NFL football approaches the post-season, Tiger-Cats defensive back finds himself considering where he might fit into the NFL landscape. Kelly tweeted a message that indicated that if he had the opportunity to be invited to an NFL training camp he feels he could make an impact.

Kelly has spent the last two seasons with the Hamilton Tiger-Cats, and during the 2022 season, he became a key contributor to the Tiger-Cats defence. During the 2022 season, Kelly had 50 tackles, 5 interceptions, and 2 quarterback sacks. While Kelly has been a member of the Tiger-Cats for the last two seasons, he does have prior experience with the NFL.

Kameron Kelly started his professional football career as a UDFA with the Dallas Cowboys in 2018. He was released before the pre-season began, and found his way to the San Diego Fleet of the Alliance of American Football. The AAF ultimately ended up suspending operations, but before the shut down he was named an AAF Defensive Player of the Week. In April 2019, Kelly was signed by the Pittsburgh Steelers, late in that season he was involved in some legal issues and was released by the Steelers. In 2021, Kelly signed with the Hamilton Tiger-Cats and played with the Tiger-Cats during the 2021 and 2022 seasons. Kelly is currently with the Hamilton Tiger-Cats but will be a free agent when the CFL’s free agency period starts on February 14th.
