TORONTO — The Toronto Argonauts announced on Tuesday that they have signed two players, DB Tigie Sankoh and K Toshiki Sato, from last week’s CFL Global Draft.
Sankoh, 23, was picked third overall by Toronto in the CFL’s Global Draft held last Thursday, April 15th.
Sankoh signed as a free agent by the Cleveland Browns in 2018 as part of the NFL’s International Player Pathway Program and spent the next couple seasons on the team’s practice squad before being released at the beginning of 2020. The 5’11, 214-pounder had five tackles, a sack and a forced fumble during the 2019 NFL pre-season. Sankoh was born in Sierra Leone but grew up in Maryland before his family moved to London, England when he was 15. Sankoh would play DB for the London Warriors of the British Football League before an invite to train at IMG Academy in Florida as part of the Pathways Program.
