You may not need a camera as much as a better lens. The Canon EF-S 17-55mm f/2.8 IS USM Lens would be a good place to start. And even faster lens may also be good, perhaps the EF 50mm f/1.8 STM Lens but you lose the ability to zoom for the faster aperture. An off brand excellent lens is the Sigma 18-35mm f/1.8 DC HSM Art Lens for Canon.
I don't know what 28-85 you have but I bet it is a slow variable ap.
The T7i should do the job if you give it good glass.

I am not a fan of that Tamron lens. It has a poor reputation for bad edge sharpness. Perhaps that is what you are seeing. What is the 70-200 you are using?

The Tamron SP 70-200mm F/2.8 Di VC G2 is a fantastic lens. In my estimation it is the 2nd best 70-200 zoom.
How does it perform on your Rebel? If it is good, the other lens may be the culprit.

I use a T7i, I shoot high school wrestling and football, so lighting is not the best. I use a 28-75 matside and a 70-200 from sidelines.
I find I’m getting a lot of noise. I’m open to crop or full frame. What will be good upgrades? I need to stay around $1200
Your shooting scenario, low light sports, is a pretty demanding one for any camera. Your gear should be able to handle most of it fairly well. I can see how noise could be a problem, but even the best gear would likely capture images with varying degrees of noise.
The T7i is a pretty decent camera, and so is the Tamron 70-200mm f/2.8 lens. An APS-C sensor is not always the best low light performer. But, I would be curious to know what camera and exposure settings you are using. Can you post a sample of a “noisy” photo that includes the EXIF data?
I am also curious to know if you save photos in the camera as JPG or RAW files. What type of post processing software that you use, if any? If you save your files as RAW, then you can use Canon’s Digital Photo Professional software to reduce much of the noise in the images. But, you will not be able to perform any lens correction because of the non-Canon lenses.
