Toronto Argonauts Add American Free Agents, Extend Two Key Canadian Contributors

The Toronto Argonauts continue to make moves, adding to their roster for the postseason while also keeping key Canadians on the roster for the future.

On Monday, the Argos announced the contract extensions of WR David Ungerer III and DB Josh Hagerty. The team also announced the signs of American free agents DB Amani Dennis and Defensive linemen Ralph Holley.

In recent weeks, the 15-2 Argonauts have fortified the back end of their roster with pickups such as WR Richie Sindani, who contributed to Toronto’s latest triumph in Saskatchewan this past weekend.

Ungerer and Hagerty are vital role players for the Boatmen. Both have been solid contributors in their respective bases and have added great value on special teams.

John Murphy, Vince Magri, and Toronto’s front office have left no stone unturned in the football landscape. Toronto has had great success the last few years signing American imports that have played in non-NFL pro leagues, such as Shawn Oakman, Dejon Allen, Cam Phillips, DeWayne Hendrix, Qwantez Stiggers, Tarvarus McFadden, and others.

DB Amani Dennis brings two solid years of pro experience playing in the USFL. He is a physical player who profiles as someone who can play multiple spots in a CFL secondary.


TORONTO – The Toronto Argonauts Football Club announced today the signing of American DB Amani Dennis and American DL Ralph Holley, as well as the contract extensions of Canadian WR David Ungerer III and Canadian DB Josh Hagerty

Dennis, 26, most recently played for the Philadelphia Stars of the USFL the past two seasons after being drafted by the team in the fourth round of the 2022 USFL Draft. The 5’11, 180lb DB had 72 tackles and five interceptions in 20 games played for the Stars. The Illinois native attended Carthage College in Wisconsin from 2015-2018, where he recorded 100 tackles, 11 interceptions, and 33 pass deflections over 29 career games. 

Holley, 24, also played with the Philadelphia Stars last season, tallying three tackles along the way. The 6’1, 285lb defensive lineman played five seasons at Western Michigan (2016-2020), where over the course of 50 games, the Michigan native added 138 tackles, 45.5 for loss, and 20.5 sacks for the Broncos. 

Ungerer III has played 17 games in his first season with Toronto and is in the midst of a career year across the board in receptions, yards, and touchdowns with 35, 491, and three, respectively. 

Hagerty, in his third season in Double Blue, played in three games in 2023, totaling eight defensive tackles, before an injury sidelined him for the rest of the regular season.
