Tyreik McAllister and Carthell Flowers-Lloyd Are the Latest Tiger-Cats To Attract Interest From NFL Teams

As the New England Patriots have had their chances for playing in the NFL playoffs ended, they are the latest NFL team to work out some of the best players in the CFL. Justin Dunk of 3DownNation reported that five current CFL players participated in a workout with the Patriots. Tyreik McAllister and Carthell Flowers-Lloyd reportedly attended this workout while still under contract with the Tiger-Cats. The CFL allows current players to explore NFL options during their CFL annual workout window, which is open from November 20th, 2023, until February 13th, 2024.

During Tyreik McAllister’s first season as a Tiger-Cat, he had a breakout year as a dynamic weapon on offence and special teams. On special teams, McAllister returned 41 kicks for an average return of 25.3 yards, and he returned 56 punts for an average of 10.8 yards. Additionally, he returned seven missed field goals for 408 yards and a touchdown. On offence, McAllister carried the football 13 times for 52 yards, and he had 27 receptions for 364 yards and two touchdowns.

Before coming to Hamilton, McAllister had spent time with the Denver Broncos after signing as an undrafted free agent. He was also a standout player for the University of Charleston, where he was an explosive playmaker on special teams and while playing running back for the Golden Eagles. Reportedly, McAllister worked out with the Las Vegas Raiders, Arizona Cardinals, and now the New England Patriots this off-season.

Carthell Flowers-Lloyd also played his first season with the Tiger-Cats during the 2023 season. Flowers-Lloyd is a defensive back on the Tiger-Cats roster but made his mark with Hamilton on special teams. During the 2023 season, Flowers-Lloyd played 18 games and produced 31 special teams tackles.

The 6’2″, 205-pound Flowers-Lloyd came to Hamilton after playing college football for Stony Brook in 2022 and three seasons at Eastern Michigan University. While playing for Stony Brook, he accumulated 70 total tackles, 14 tackles for loss, two quarterback sacks, forced one fumble, recovered one fumble, one interception, and broke up four passes.
