Tiger-Cats Make Roster Changes Adding TE McDonald and DB Rodgers

Heading into Week 3 of the 2024 season, the Tiger-Cats are looking for ways to upgrade their roster. Those upgrades are coming as the Tiger-Cats want to avenge their Week 2 loss against the Saskatchewan Roughriders while traveling to Saskatchewan in Week 3. According to an announcement from the Hamilton Tiger-Cats, those moves include releasing American defensive back Mark Milton American wide receiver Kaylon Geiger, and signing American tight end Camren McDonald and American defensive back Kordell Rodgers.

Mark Milton played one game for the Tiger-Cats this season and recorded three defensive tackles. Wide receiver Kaylon Geiger made the Tiger-Cats roster coming out of Tiger-Cats training camp but had not played a game for Hamilton this season. The decision to remove Milton and Geiger made room for the Tiger-Cats to bring back tight end Camren McDonald and to add Rodgers to fill in the open roster spot in place of Milton.

Tight end Camren McDonald is returning to the Tiger-Cats roster after being cut during the training camp’s final round of roster cuts. The 6’4″, 245-pound native of Long Beach, California, brings a wealth of experience. Before joining the Tiger-Cats, McDonald had stints with the Los Angeles Rams and the Green Bay Packers in the 2023 NFL season. He also had a successful college football career at Florida State University from 2018 to 2022, where he made 74 passes for 861 yards and five touchdowns for the Seminoles.

Defensive back Kordell Rodgers is getting an opportunity to make his mark with the Tiger-Cats after a successful 2023 CFL season with the Montreal Alouettes. In his 12 games for the Alouettes, Rodgers made significant contributions, recording 37 tackles, two tackles for loss, three pass breakups, and two interceptions. The 5’11”, 175-pound native of Lufkin, Texas, is a seasoned player, having played college football at Texas State University from 2017 to 2022. His impressive college stats include 156 tackles, four tackles for loss, one quarterback sack, seven interceptions, 25 pass breakups, one forced fumble, and one fumble recovery, which speak volumes about his potential with the Tiger-Cats.
