In an unanticipated twist, the trade between the Calgary Stampeders and the Hamilton Tiger-Cats involving American defensive lineman Ja’Gared Davis has been voided. The cancellation of the trade stems from Davis failing his physical examination with Calgary, a condition set as a part of the trade agreement. Consequently, Davis will return to Hamilton, and Calgary will retain their sixth-round selection in the 2024 CFL Draft.
Davis, a veteran defensive end, had an illustrious career that spans over 94 games, in which he recorded 260 tackles, 49 sacks, and four interceptions. He has appeared in six consecutive Grey Cups as a member of the Stampeders (2016-18), Ticats (2019-21), and Argos (2022), coming out as a winner in two.
Despite his achievements, Davis had been a healthy scratch in Week 7 after recording seven defensive tackles over Hamilton’s first five games of the year. The 32-year-old had signed with the Ticats as a free agent this past off-season after a one-year stint with the Toronto Argonauts.
With a 2-4 standing, the Hamilton Tiger-Cats are scheduled to face off against the Ottawa Redblacks (3-3) on Friday, July 28, at 7:30 p.m. EDT. The unexpected return of Davis could potentially bolster the defensive line of the Tiger-Cats, making the upcoming clash an exciting fixture to watch.
