The Hamilton Tiger-Cats have announced that they have signed American quarterback Taylor Powell. Powell adds more depth to one of the most critical positions for the Tiger-Cats. However, Powell must be ready to prove that he can compete in the CFL. As Hamilton makes roster cuts and continues to evaluate talent, Powell must demonstrate that he is a good fit for the Tiger-Cats on the field and in the quarterback room.
Taylor Powell is a 6’2″, 207-pound quarterback from Fayetteville, Arkansas. Powell spent his college football career with several FBS teams. In 2022, Powell played nine games at Eastern Michigan University, completing 174 passes on 269 attempts for 2,111 yards, 16 touchdowns, and eight interceptions. During the 2021 season, he played six games at Troy University, completed 125 passes on 189 attempts, scored seven touchdowns, and threw six interceptions. Then, from 2017 until 2019, Powell played at the University of Missouri in 15 games, completing 35 passes on 76 attempts, scoring one touchdown, and throwing two interceptions.
The ability to adapt and learn offensive schemes will be a significant strength as Powell enters the world of Canadian football and simultaneously digests Tommy Condell’s playbook.
The Tiger-Cats have released several players to reduce their roster to 75 active players.
Offensively, Hamilton has released American running back Devontae Dean, American wide receiver Kendrick Price Jr., American wide receiver Darvin Kidsy, American wide receiver Neil Pau’u, and American offensive lineman Gannon Grider. On defense, the Tiger-Cats have released American defensive lineman Alvin Ward Jr., American defensive back Lummie Young IV, and American defensive back RJ Rountree.
