Proven Success: Jordan Murray’s Re-signing Gives Hamilton Tiger-Cats’ Offensive Line a Boost

Successful offenses in the CFL begin with a cohesive offensive line unit with experience and chemistry. The Tiger-Cats have chosen to continue to invest in their offensive line by re-signing American offensive lineman Jordan Murray. Murray is the most recent player from the Tiger-Cats 2023 offensive line to receive a two-year contract extension.

Earlier this off-season, Hamilton extended the contracts of Brandon Revenberg and Coulter Woodmansey to continue building off of the momentum of the running game in the 2023 season. During the 2023 season, the Tiger-Cats’ offensive line helped running back James Butler rush for over 1000 yards. A solid running game is essential if Hamilton intends to have a chance to play for a championship in 2024

Murray is a 26-year-old, 6’9″, 330-pound offensive lineman from Coppell, Texas. He played with the Tiger-Cats during the 2021 and 2023 seasons; in 2023, he started in 7 games, and over his two years with Hamilton, he has played in 18 games. During those 18 games, Murray increased his value for Hamilton by demonstrating the ability to play in both offensive tackle positions.

Before coming to the CFL, Murray spent time with the Seattle Seahawks in 2019. After playing with Hamilton in 2021, Murray signed with the Indianapolis Colts and spent the 2022 season and a portion of the 2023 season with them. He also played for the Generals of the Spring League in 2020 and helped the Generals win the 2020 Spring League championship.

Murray played four college football seasons at the University of North Texas from 2015 until 2018. While at North Texas, he played in 44 games for the Mean Green. While at North Texas, Murray showed his ability to be flexible while playing in both offensive tackle and offensive guard positions during his four-year career.
