Just days after re-signing 13 different Argos and adding five others to their offseason roster. The Toronto Argonauts have announced two more re-signings, OTs Isiah Cage and Trevon Tate while adding free-agent wide receiver Aleva Hifo.
The return of projected 2022 starters at offensive tackle, Cage, and Tate, gives the Double Blue added depth alongside standout OT Dejon Allen.
The question mark becomes what the team will do at left tackle with grizzled 37-year-old vet Philip Blake slated to hit free agency. Retirement could be in the cards for the Toronto native and longtime CFL standout Blake.
Trevon Tate and Isiah Cage endured an injury-plagued 2022 campaign. Cage, in particular, has struggled mightily attempting to overcome the injury bug. As a result, the Argonauts’ front office might further address the position through the draft and free agency.
Toronto is two months away from CFL free agency. The 2022 CFL Champion Argonauts still have 23 remaining impending free agents after today’s transactions. The FA period begins on February 14th.

THE ARGOS RE-SIGN OL ISIAH CAGE & OL TREVON TATE; SIGN AMERICAN WR ALEVA HIFO
TORONTO – The Toronto Argonauts Football Club announced the re-signing of American Offensive Lineman Isiah Cage and Trevon Tate, as well as the signing of American WR Aleva Hifo.
Cage, 29, is back for his sixth year in Double Blue after only playing two games in 2022 due to injury. The Wisconsin native has suited up for 13 games over the course of his Double Blue career.
Tate, 26, returns for his third season in Toronto after originally being signed in August of 2021. The 6’4, 295lb lineman played four games before a season-ending injury ended his 2022 campaign. The Texas native has played 11 games over his three-year CFL career between Hamilton, Ottawa, and Toronto.
Aleva Hifo, 24, spent 2021 training camp with the Arizona Cardinals and parts of 2020 with the Kansas City Chiefs. The 5’10, 187lb receiver spent four seasons at BYU (2016-2019), where he hauled in 118 receptions for 1,336 yards and seven touchdowns in 51 career games for the Cougars. The California native also returned 29 kickoffs for 598 yards and threw for a touchdown during his collegiate career.
