Calvin Bernard Tiggle (born November 10, 1968), is a former award winning linebacker in the Canadian Football League.

After graduating from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers of the NFL, where in 24 games he recorded one quarterback sack.

He came to Canada in 1994, playing his first of 4 seasons with the Toronto Argonauts. He was an all star in his first season, setting the team record with 129 tackles. He moved to the Hamilton Tiger-Cats for 4 seasons in 1996, and was an all star in 1998 and 1999, also winning the CFL's Most Outstanding Defensive Player Award in 1999. He finished his career with Toronto in 2000 and 2001, where he was again an all star in 2000.

In 2004, he was issued a departure order to leave Canada after an Immigration Minister's permit to play football expired, and he had a run-in with the law (charges were dropped, but he has prior U.S. criminal convictions that had previously denied him entry into Canada twice before.)
