TORONTO — The Toronto Argonauts have agreed to terms with American DL Ja’Gared Davis, the team announced on Tuesday.

Davis was ranked No. 4 on CFL.ca’s Top 30 Pending Free Agents list.

In three post-season games Davis recorded seven tackles, five sacks and a forced fumble, disrupting offensive lines along the way. The Texas native was an East All-Star in 2019 after finishing second in the CFL with 13 sacks and adding 54 defensive tackles in his first year in Hamilton.

The six-foot-one, 238-pound lineman came to the CFL in 2016 with Calgary, where he worked closely with now Argos defensive coordinator Corey Mace, and averaged nearly eight sacks a season for his three years with the Stampeders. Davis would help Calgary capture the 106th Grey Cup in 2018 and the lineman has reached the Grey Cup every season of his career. The former Southern Methodist Mustang spent time with Houston, New England, Kansas City and Washington of the NFL from 2013-2015.
