WR Marcus Rogers is the Newest Addition to the Tiger-Cats Roster

Coming into training camp, Tiger-Cats head coach Scott Milanovich said that Hamilton needs more size at wide receivers capable of playing more physically. Wide receiver Terry Godwin became a casualty of that change in philosophy for Hamilton. After releasing Godwin, the Tiger-Cats signed former XFL wide receiver TJ Vasher and Dev Hamilton.

As the Tiger-Cats coaching staff evaluates the players currently in camp, there has been an ongoing effort to add more talent that fits the personnel philosophy that will allow Milanovich’s vision to become reality. According to the CFL Transactions list, Hamilton has added another wide receiver by signing Marcus Rogers. Joining the Tiger-Cats is an opportunity for Rogers to demonstrate that he can be a good fit for the Tiger-Cats wide receiving unit.

Joining the Tiger-Cats is Marcus Rogers, a 6’3″, 211-pound wide receiver from Smyrna, Georgia. While he may be new to professional football, Rogers brings a wealth of knowledge from his college football career, demonstrating his adaptability in various environments and situations. His arrival in Hamilton presents an opportunity for him to showcase his potential as a valuable addition to the Tiger-Cats wide receiving unit.

Rogers started his college football career at Georgia Southern University in 2018, playing in 13 games but only having one catch for 8 yards. He then transferred to Iowa Western Community College in 2019, playing in 11 games and having ten catches for 153 yards and one touchdown. While at Iowa Western, Rogers earned another opportunity to return to NCAA FBS football.

In 2020, Rogers made a significant move, transferring to Troy University. Playing for the Trojans, he had the opportunity to showcase his skills in 35 games from 2020 until 2023. During this time, Rogers caught 25 passes for 331 yards, demonstrating his ability to contribute to the team’s offensive plays. As the Tiger-Cats rebuild their wide receiver group, Rogers’ performance in the coming days will be crucial if he intends to have a chance to make the Tiger-Cats roster in 2024.
