Calgary signed Baggs as a free agent on Sept. 10, 2012. He entered the CFL in 2006 when he signed with the Winnipeg Blue Bombers as a free agent. After seven games for the Blue Bombers in 2006 and 2007 and seven games for the Edmonton Eskimos in 2007, Baggs signed with Saskatchewan in 2008 and played two seasons with the Roughriders. He then signed with Hamilton on Sept. 16, 2010, and remained with the Tiger-Cats through the 2011 season. Baggs attended National Football League training camps with the Arizona Cardinals in 2010 and with the Baltimore Ravens in 2012. In 2005, he spent time with the Detroit Lions and Jacksonville Jaguars and played for the Frankfurt Galaxy in NFL Europe.
Baggs spent five weeks on the Stampeders practice roster when he joined the team mid-season and was activated in Week 16 for the Oct. 20 game against Hamilton and recorded one tackle. However, he re-injured his quad in that contest and was placed on the nine-game injury list. Prior to joining the Stamps, Baggs attended training camp with the NFL’s Baltimore Ravens.
Baggs played all 18 regular-season games for Hamilton as well as the East Division final. He led all Tiger-Cats defensive linemen with 50 tackles and was tied for third on the team with five sacks. Baggs also had five tackles for loss, one forced fumble, two fumble recoveries and one pass knockdown. He added five tackles, including one tackle for loss, in the East Division final against Winnipeg. His season high in tackles (six) came on Oct. 29 against Saskatchewan.
Baggs played four seasons at Bethune-Cookman University in Daytona Beach, Fla. He was named to the all-Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference team on three occasions and was the MEAC defensive player of the year in 2003 when he had 15 sacks and 36 tackles for loss. Baggs holds the Wildcats’ all-time record with 40 sacks.
Baggs has been active in the community during his playing career, hosting youth football camps and serving as president of Creating Empowerment Through Autonomy, a not-for-profit organization with the mission “to provide information, education and skills development to individuals, neighborhoods and communities that lead to self-reliance, self-respect.”
