2023: In 17 games with the Hamilton Tiger-Cats, he registered five sacks and 52 defensive tackles. He had a pair of two-sack games.

 

PRO: As a first-year CFLer with Hamilton in 2021, Carney had three defensive tackles and one sack in seven games after signing with the Tiger-Cats as a free agent on Jan. 18, 2021. He emerged as a consistent starter in 2022, posting seven sacks — including three against Saskatchewan on Oct. 7 — in 17 games. Before signing with Hamilton, Carney had NFL stints with the Denver Broncos, Detroit Lions and Seattle Seahawks.

 

COLLEGE: Played in 36 games over four seasons (2015 to 2018) at the University of North Carolina, registering 176 total tackles (including 32.5 for a loss), 17 sacks, four pass knockdowns, five forced fumbles and three fumble recoveries — one of which was returned for a touchdown.

 

FAST FACT: Carney is nicknamed Scoop. “That goes all the way back to high school,” he explains. “I can remember it vividly. Defensively, it wasn’t one of our best days. One of our scout-team running backs was having a crazy practice and our coach was on our tail. Long story short, the coach called a play where we met between the tackles, and I scooped him and dumped him. One of my teammates was saying, ‘You scooped him! You scooped him!’ So I was Big Scoop. Once I got to college, they dropped off the Big and I just became Scoop.”
