Today, the Hamilton Tiger-Cats announced their most recent players signed over the last two weeks. Among those players, defensive back Shabari Davis Jr., wide receiver Devon Williams, and offensive lineman Brendan Bordner are seeking opportunities in the CFL after not being selected during the player allotment process of the UFL. Wide receiver Cameron Batson signed with the Tiger-Cats after playing with the Tennessee Titans and spending time with the Atlanta Falcons. It has been known for several days that the Tiger-Cats acquired these players, but wide receiver Kaylon Geiger was a name that had yet to be released previously.
Kaylon Geiger is an American wide receiver who most recently spent time with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2022 and a portion of 2023. During the 2022 season, Geiger played three games for the Buccaneers after being signed as an undrafted free agent. In January 2023, the Buccaneers signed Geiger to a reserve/future contract but then waived him on August 28th, 2023.
Geiger is a 26-year-old, 5’10”, 180-pound wide receiver from Fort Worth, Texas. Before signing with Tampa Bay, he had played his senior year of college football at Texas Tech University in 2021. He played in 13 games with the Red Raiders and caught 44 passes for 533 yards and a touchdown.
The Texas native also played for Troy University for two seasons from 2019 until 2020. While playing for the Trojans, he had 141 receptions for 1,625 yards and eight touchdowns. Geiger also returned kicks at Troy and averaged 24.71 yards per return during the 2020 season.
Before playing for Troy, Geiger played two seasons at the junior college level at Navarro College. During his first year at Navarro, he caught 30 passes for 397 yards and three touchdowns. He followed that season up with 70 catches for 954 yards and five touchdowns during the 2018 season.
