Ticats sign OL Kay Okafor to extension
HAMILTON — The Hamilton Tiger-Cats announced Wednesday the football club has signed national offensive lineman Kay Okafor to a contact extension.
Okafor was set to become a free agent next week.
Okafor, 29, played eight games for the Tiger-Cats in 2021 before suffering a season-ending injury. The six-foot-three, 295-pound native of Enugu, Nigeria has suited up in 35 games over his three-year Canadian Football League career, all with the Hamilton Tiger-Cats (2018-21).
The St. Francis Xavier University product was originally selected by the Ticats in the third round, 21st overall in the 2017 CFL Draft as a defensive lineman before transitioning to the offensive side of the ball.
