The Grey Cup Champion Toronto Argonauts re-signed defensive back DaShaun Amos and veteran wide receiver DaVaris Daniels on Sunday the 5th of February. Both players were eligible to become free agents on Feb 14th. The exact details of each player’s contract have yet to be announced by the team.
The 28-year old Amos, played 17 games last season, which was his first with the Argos. He tallied a career-high 49 defensive tackles and made four interceptions, in what turned out to be a career defining year.
The 6 foot, 188lb DB from Virginia entered the CFL in 2018, playing for the Calgary Stampeders for three seasons. Amos became a West Division All-Star in 2019 and was part of the Stampeders team which won the Grey Cup in 2018. In his 49 regular-season games in the league, Amos has a total 128 defensive tackles, nine interceptions, one forced fumble and one touchdown.
Veteran wide receiver Davaris Daniels turned thirty last year, making him an elder statesman in the locker room. Daniels played 16 games for the Argos in 2022, catching a career-high 61 passes for 860 yards and 4 touchdowns.
The Notre Dame alum came up big deep in the playoffs, with six catches for 108 yards that included one touchdown in the Eastern Final. He then had a solid Grey Cup Championship game, picking up seven passes for 58 yards.
Daniels signed with the Argonauts during free agency in February of 2020 and has since tallied 112 receptions for 1,457 yards and eight touchdowns in two seasons in blue. Prior to signing with the Argos, Daniels spent his first three seasons from 2016-2018 with Calgary, winning Most Outstanding Rookie in 2016. He also spent a year with the Edmonton Elks in 2019. Daniel’s CFL career production is an impressive 314 receptions for 4,570 yards and 30 touchdowns.
The Argos have now re-signed 12 players from the championship squad. There are still 14 pending free agents from last year, which seems to be whittling down each week. Expect a majority of the Grey Cup winning team to be back next season as we get closer and closer to the free agent deadline.
