Stampeders Make Cuts As Training Camp Begins

The Calgary Stampeders have released defensive lineman Terry Beckner Jr, linebacker Lino Schroter, and receiver Dontario Drummond as training camp begins.

The Stampeders have released defensive lineman Terry Beckner Jr, linebacker Lino Schroter and wide receiver Dontario Drummond. Beckner and Drummond are listed as American while Schroter is a global player.

With the new season looming the Stamps are refining their roster. With the first preseason game for the Stamps less than two weeks away the team is trimming the roster. The decisions were announced prior to the start of training camp Sunday morning.

Beckner Jr. played 4 seasons for Missouri in the SEC. He finished his collegiate career in 2018 with 120 total tackles and 13.5 sacks and has since played 10 games in the USFL, getting 14 tackles and 3 sacks. The Stamps had re-signed Schroter in April.

Drummond was signed by Calgary in January at the same time as wide receivers Cameron Echols-Luper and Jaquarii Roberson. Drummond played 3 seasons for the Mississippi Rebels during which time he caught 113 receptions for 1,628 yards and 15 touchdowns. He spent 2 years with the Dallas Cowboys but never played a game.

Two Placed on Injured-Veteran List

Canadian defensive back Daniel Amoako and offensive lineman Kyle Saxelid have each been put on the injured-veteran list. Amoako played 10 games for Calgary in 2022, getting 2 tackles on defense and 4 on special teams. Between 2016 and 2021 Amoako played 30 games for York University during which time he recorded 43 total tackles and 3 interceptions.

Saxelid, standing at 6 foot 8 and weighing in at 320 pounds, was acquired earlier in May. The second-round draft pick in 2019 played 29 games for Edmonton including 16 starts. He was traded to Hamilton where he played 10 games over two seasons, sidelined by injuries.

American wide receiver Malachi Wideman has been moved to the suspended list.

The cuts bring the Stampeders roster to the mandated maximum of 85 players. Calgary has an additional 14 Canadian rookies who do not count against the maximum players allowed on the roster giving their roster a total count of 99 players.

Their first preseason game will be the Saturday May 25th when they host the Lions for an afternoon game.
