- Calgary Stampeders release American receiver Markeith Ambles.
- Ambles, a University of Houston alum, had 15 catches for 193 yards in four games this season with the Stampeders.
- The Stampeders are scheduled to play the Montreal Alouettes at McMahon Stadium on Saturday.
In a move that has CFL fans talking, the Calgary Stampeders announced this past Friday the release of their American receiver Markeith Ambles.
The 31-year-old University of Houston alum had been with the Stampeders for his second stint, racking up 15 catches for 193 yards in just four games. While this tenure may seem short-lived, it’s worth remembering that Ambles was signed in early August after being let go by the Toronto Argonauts.
It’s rather interesting to note that Ambles did not see any action with the Argos this season despite having an outstanding 2022. He set career highs across the board, helping the Argonauts win the coveted Grey Cup. During that season, he made an impressive 72 catches for 737 yards and five touchdowns. Those stats put him second, third, and tied for first respectively, on the Argos’ roster last year.
Although this move has come as a surprise to many, it’s not entirely without precedent. Teams often make roster changes for various strategic reasons, and the Stampeders are no exception.
Now, all eyes are on the Calgary Stampeders as they prepare for their next game. They’re slated to be on the field at McMahon Stadium this Saturday at 4:00 p.m. ET, facing the Montreal Alouettes. This would be the team’s first outing without Ambles, and it will certainly be interesting to see how they adjust their game strategy in his absence.
In the ever-changing landscape of Canadian Football, the release of Markeith Ambles by the Calgary Stampeders is just another reminder of the unpredictable nature of this sport. We’ll keep you posted on any further developments.
By keeping your eyes peeled and your ears to the ground, you’ll never miss a beat in the world of CFL. Stay tuned for more updates.
