HAMILTON — The Hamilton Tiger-Cats announced a new contract structure for American quarterback Bo Levi Mitchell on Friday. The deal keeps Mitchell under contract for the next two seasons (2024 and 2025).

“We believe a healthy Bo Levi Mitchell can still play at a championship level and help us compete for Grey Cups. As we continue to shape our roster, we feel Bo is a key piece of our football team going forward,” said Orlondo Steinauer, president of football operations of the Hamilton Tiger-Cats.
