Media sources have reported that the Hamilton Tiger-Cats have re-signed American wide receiver Tim White to a one-year contract. White was a CFL All-Star in 2022 after being a driving force during the Tiger-Cat’s push for the playoffs. White had a breakout performance during the 2023 season and developed into an explosive playmaker for the Tiger-Cats. Expectations for Tim White and the Tiger-Cats offence will be high coming into the 2023 season due to Bo Levi Mitchell’s signing at quarterback and White returning after establishing himself as Hamilton’s top offensive weapon.
During the 2022 season, the 28-year-old White accumulated 94 catches for 1,265 yards and eight touchdowns while playing in 17 games. White led the CFL in receptions and total targets, and he finished fifth in the CFL in touchdown catches and fourth in yards. His explosive 2022 season came after a 56-reception performance in the shortened 2021 season.
White comes from Santa Clarita, California, and played college football at Arizona State University. He has built a reputation for being an elite CFL athlete over the last two seasons. The Tiger-Cat offence, designed by offensive coordinator Tommy Condell, uses White’s athleticism as a receiver and rusher sometimes. During the 2022 season, White had 21 rush attempts for 141 yards. As the Tiger-Cats re-build their offence during the off-season, White has the athletic ability to fill multiple roles and should continue to produce explosive plays for the Hamilton offence.
