Tiger-Cats Secure Allie Green IV to Bolster Their Defensive Backfield

The Hamilton Tiger-Cats continue to collect American defensive backs to add depth and strength to their defensive backfield. According to the CFL Transactions list, the Tiger-Cats have signed American defensive back Allie Green IV. Green IV is the second American defensive back to be acquired by Hamilton this week, joining former XFL champion cornerback Shakur Brown.

Defensive back Allie Green IV is a 6’2″, 202-pound native of Austin, Texas. He started his college football career at the University of Tulsa, where he played in 43 games for the Golden Hurricane from 2017 until 2020. During his time in Tulsa, Green recorded 116 total tackles, 11 pass deflections, one interception, and one forced fumble.

In 2021, Green IV transferred to the University of Missouri to play his final season of college football. Green IV played in 12 games for the Tigers, registering 30 tackles and four pass deflections. After his final year at Missouri, Green IV prepared for the NFL Draft. He was not drafted, but the Chicago Bears did sign Green IV as an undrafted free agent.

The pre-NFL Draft scouting report on Green IV mentions that he lacked elite sprinting speed with a documented 4.71s forty-yard dash time, but he is a physical defensive back. To make up for his lack of speed, he displays solid footwork and does a great job of closing on plays in front of him. He is a reliable tackler, and he makes sound, disciplined reads. The combination of above-average agility, making great reads, and being a sound tackler should give him an excellent opportunity to compete for a spot on the Tiger-Cats depth chart heading into the 2024 season.
