Hamilton Tiger-Cats Linebacker Carthell Flowers-Lloyd Gains NFL Attention

Following an impressive rookie season in the Canadian Football League (CFL), Hamilton Tiger-Cats linebacker Carthell Flowers-Lloyd has caught the eye of the National Football League (NFL). On Friday, the Jacksonville Jaguars had conducted a workout session with the 25-year-old, highlighting the cross-border interest in his talents.

In a robust 2023 season, Flowers-Lloyd established himself as a key component of the Tiger-Cats’ special teams unit, recording 31 tackles over 18 games. Although his role on defense was more limited, the attention from the NFL could signal a broadening of his professional horizons. The interest is such that additional NFL workouts are anticipated in the next few weeks.

Flowers-Lloyd’s football journey began well before his time in the CFL. At Stony Brook University, as a collegiate safety, he achieved third-team all-conference recognition in 2022. His college stats impress with 70 total tackles, 14 for loss, two sacks, one interception, and four pass breakups over 10 games. Prior to his stint at Stony Brook, Flowers-Lloyd was at Eastern Michigan University, tallying 25 tackles across 31 games.

While Flowers-Lloyd is signed with the Tiger-Cats for the 2024 season, CFL policy allows for exploration of NFL prospects during a specific workout window. This period runs from November 20 to February 13, 2024. Notably, CFL players can ink reserve/futures contracts with NFL teams starting January 8, 2024.
