Tiger-Cats Secure Promising Defensive Back Caleb Biggers

Since the start of the 2024 free agency period, the Hamilton Tiger-Cats have focused on improving their defensive units with young talent. The most notable signings involved the Tiger-Cats signing CFL All-Star defensive back Jamal Peters. Today, the CFL Transactions list shows that the Tiger-Cats continue adding young players to their defensive backfield by signing American defensive back Caleb Biggers.

Caleb Biggers is a 24-year-old, 5’10”, 202-pound defensive back from Baltimore, Maryland. The Maryland native started his college football career at Bowling Green State University, and he played in 25 games for the Falcons from 2018 until 2020. While at Bowling Green, Biggers recorded 100 total tackles, four tackles for loss, deflected four passes, recovered one fumble, and scored a defensive touchdown.

In 2021, Biggers left Bowling Green while transferring to Boise State University. Biggers played in 26 games for Boise State during the 2021 and 2022 seasons. While playing for the Broncos, he registered 70 total tackles, five tackles for loss, one quarterback sack, deflected four passes, forced one fumble, and recovered one fumble.

Biggers has proven himself an effective cornerback at the college level and is looking for an opportunity to prove himself professionally. In 2023, the Cleveland Browns signed Biggers as an undrafted free agent. While with the Browns, Biggers did not get a chance to contribute to the Brown’s efforts on the field during the season, and getting an opportunity to compete for a chance on the Tiger-Cats roster would be a significant opportunity for the young defensive back.
