Miles put up 10 defensive tackles, nine special teams tackles and a sack last season. The 24-year-old has a total of 74 tackles, two sacks and a forced fumble in 40 career games.
“Thomas is another solid key piece to our Canadian depth,” Blue Bombers general manager Kyle Walters said in a statement.
“He has the ability to play a role on special teams as well as on defence and obviously being able to add a local product to our organization is always an added benefit.”
Miles was taken 33rd overall by Toronto in the 2014 CFL Draft.
