HAMILTON — The Hamilton Tiger-Cats re-signed Canadian defensive tackle Ted Laurent on Tuesday.

The 34-year-old started 11-of-13 games last season with Hamilton, registering 14 tackles. 

Laurent missed last year’s Grey Cup due to appendicitis.

The six-foot-one, 299-pound Laurent has started 131-of-155 career CFL regular-season games with Edmonton (2011-13) and Hamilton (2014-19, 2021). He has accumulated 200 tackles, one special-teams tackle, 48 sacks, seven forced fumbles and two fumble recoveries.
