Kornegay appeared in 15 games last season with Saskatchewan and B.C., registering 39 tackles, two interceptions, two fumble recoveries and five pass knockdowns. Kornegay has dressed for 106 career games and compiled 134 tackles, 51 special-teams tackles, three sacks, seven interceptions, eight forced fumbles and seven fumble recoveries.
