John Chick (born November 20, 1982) is a professional Canadian football defensive end for the Hamilton Tiger-Cats of the Canadian Football League (CFL). Prior to playing professional football, Chick played National Collegiate Athletic Association football for the Utah State Aggies. Chick was named the CFL's Most Outstanding Defensive Player after the 2009 CFL season. He has helped the Roughriders capture the Grey Cup twice, in 2007 and 2013. Chick has spent time in the National Football League with the Indianapolis Colts and Jacksonville Jaguars.
Chick attended training camp with the Houston Texans as an undrafted free agent in 2006. Before joining the Texans, he played college football at Utah State. During his senior season with the Aggies, Chick recorded 12.5 quarterback sacks, good enough for fifth overall in the National Collegiate Athletic Association.
Chick joined the Saskatchewan Roughriders of the Canadian Football League in December, 2006. During his rookie season, he started 13 games and was the club's nominee for CFL's Most Outstanding Rookie Award, and also helped the team win the 2007 Grey Cup. In the Grey Cup final game, Chick recorded three tackles, one quarterback sack and forced one fumble. After the 2009 CFL season, Chick was named the league's top defensive player and signed with the Indianapolis Colts of the National Football League. He spent the entire 2010 NFL season on the team's practice roster, and joined the Jacksonville Jaguars for the 2011 NFL season. During his first season with the Jaguars, Chick played in 11 games with the team. He was on the Jaguars roster for the 2012 season, spending six games on the physically unable to perform list before being promoted to the active roster. He ended up playing eight games for the Jaguars in 2012. Chick re-signed with the Roughriders on June 2, 2013.
In his first two seasons back in the CFL Chick proved he was still a pass rushing talent. In 2013, he made 36 tackles and 8 sacks, while in 2014, he led the CFL in sacks with 15, while adding 45 tackles. In February 2015 Chick and the Riders agreed to a contract extension Thursday that will keep him with the CFL club through 2016 season. However, he was released by the club on January 14, 2016.
John is married. With his wife, Catherine, they have 8 children; daughter Camryn (b. 2006), Robert (b. 2007), Joshua (b. 2009), Lucas (b. 2010), twins Julia and Matthew (b. 2012), and Dominic (b. 2014). They welcomed their 8th child in December, 2015.
