Tiger-Cats Add DB Bagayogo to their Practice Roster

One day after the Hamilton Tiger-Cats announced that they had signed American quarterback Taulia Tagovailoa to their practice roster, Hamilton signed an additional defensive player to their practice roster. According to the CFL Transactions list, the Tiger-Cats have added National defensive back Siriman Harrison Bagayogo to their practice roster. Bagayogo is the latest addition to a re-tooled defensive backfield for the Tiger-Cats for the 2024 season.

Bagayogo is a 6’3″, 195-pound defensive back from Bois-Des-Filin, Quebec. He started his career in the CFL with the BC Lions in 2023. During the 2023 season, Bagayogo played 14 games and recorded six defensive and three special teams tackles. The BC Lions released Bagyogo just before the start of the 2024 regular season.

Prior to signing with the BC Lions, Bagayogo played U Sports football at the University of Guelph. During his 2022 season with the Gryphons, he played in 10 games and recorded ten solo tackles, five assisted tackles, one forced fumble, one interception, two pass breakups, and one kick block. Coming to Hamilton gives Bagayogo another opportunity to show he can contribute as a defensive back in the CFL.

Signing Bagayogo gives the Tiger-Cats another player to add depth to their defensive backfield. Bagayogo’s experience playing on special teams makes him a potentially valuable addition to Hamilton’s roster. It will be interesting to see if Bagayogo can earn himself an active position in the Tiger-Cats’ defensive backfield during the 2024 season.
