The Hamilton Tiger-Cats theme for this week has been signing new players to add roster depth to key position groups. Earlier this week, Hamilton signed a pair of defensive backs and two additional defensive linemen. While it seemed like the Tiger-Cat’s focus has been on adding defensive roster depth, the signings continued today when Hamilton signed three American receivers.
Those receivers are Darvin Kidsy Jr., Kendrick Price, and Lio’undre Gallimore. In a position group that is one of the strongest for the Tiger-Cats the prospects for these new receivers to fit into the Hamilton roster will lie in their ability to make themselves valuable. Let’s take a deeper look at what qualities these receivers offer as they fight for their opportunity to provide value to the Hamilton offence.
Darvin Kidsy Jr. is a 27-year-old receiver from Missouri City, Texas that brings a wealth of professional football experience to the CFL. The 6’0″ 180-pound receiver has played with the Saskatchewan Roughriders (2022), Houston Gamblers of the USFL (2022), Seattle Seahawks of the NFL (2020-21), and the Washington Commanders (2018-2019). Kendrick Price is a 24-year-old receiver from Lindale, Texas with a 6’1″ 205-pound build. Price did participate in a rookie mini-camp with the Kansas City Chiefs in 2022, and he played collegiately at Northwestern State (2017-21) where he produced 60 catches for 868 yards and 11 touchdowns. Lio’undre Gallimore is a 23-year-old receiver from Miami Gardens, Florida and he played college football at Valdosta State in southern Georgia from 2017-2021. While at Valdosta State, Gallimore produced 145 catches for 2,808 yards and 31 touchdowns.
Each of these receivers brings diverse backgrounds to the Tiger-Cats. Kidsy Jr. has the most professional football experience, and he has had the chance to play football in the NFL. With that background in mind, he should have the best opportunity to fit into the Tiger-Cats wide receiver room.
Price and Gallimore both have good physical builds and the potential to be role players for Hamilton, but both will need some time to adapt to the style of football played in the CFL. The best opportunity for Price and Gallimore to be contributors could lie in their ability to fit into a special teams role for Hamilton.
