The first major domino in the 2023 CFL Free Agency fell today as Quarterback Bo Levi Mitchell signed a 3-year contract with the Tiger-Cats.
Without question, this signing should indicate the Ticats are making serious push to win the Grey Cup on their home turf this coming season. Mitchell has a lengthy resume and track record as one of the elite Quarterbacks in the CFL, when healthy.
The 32-year-old native of Katy, Texas played for ten seasons with the Calgary Stampeders, starting as backup to Kevin Glenn from 2012 to 2013 before being named QB1 for the next nine seasons in 2014 leading to two Grey Cup championships. The two-time CFL Most Outstanding Player was demoted to backup for Jake Maier early last season.
During his career with the Stampeders, Mitchell passed for 32,541 yards, 188 touchdowns and 89 interceptions. In 2019, Mitchell became a member of the CFL All-Decade Team.
