The Calgary Stampeders are making significant moves and updates to their roster as they aim to secure a playoff berth in the upcoming CFL season. Here are the latest developments:
- Tommylee Lewis Leaves the Team
Head coach Dave Dickenson confirmed that Tommylee Lewis would not return to the Calgary Stampeders. Lewis, who was preparing for the arrival of a baby, ended his first season with the team. In 10 games, he recorded 18 receptions for 138 yards and excelled in kick and punt returns. Lewis, a former NFL player with experience at the New Orleans Saints, Detroit Lions, and Miami Dolphins, is no longer part of the Stampeders’ lineup.
- Reggie Begelton Returns to Practice
Star receiver Reggie Begelton is back in full gear during practice after missing the team’s recent victory over the Saskatchewan Roughriders. His return is a welcome development for the Stampeders as they continue their playoff push.
- Ryan Leder Joins Practice Roster
The Stampeders have signed national defensive lineman Ryan Leder and added him to their practice roster. Leder, Calgary’s fifth-round draft selection in the 2023 CFL Draft, previously attended training camp with the Stampeders before returning to McMaster University for his final season. Leder brings a strong defensive presence, having accumulated impressive statistics during his college career.
Tommylee Lewis’ Departure
The Stampeders bid farewell to Tommylee Lewis, who left the team due to impending fatherhood. Lewis, who dressed for 10 games with the club, made significant contributions as a field-side wide receiver and an exceptional return specialist. His departure leaves a void in the Stampeders’ lineup, and the team will miss his playmaking abilities.
Reggie Begelton’s Return
Reggie Begelton’s return to full practice is a positive sign for the Stampeders. His presence on the field adds depth and experience to the receiving corps, a crucial asset as they strive for a playoff spot with only two games remaining.
Ryan Leder Joins Practice Roster
The Calgary Stampeders have added national defensive lineman Ryan Leder to their practice roster. Leder, the team’s fifth-round draft pick, boasts an impressive college career and has the potential to make a significant impact on the Stampeders’ defense. His addition enhances the team’s depth and versatility.
Damontre Moore Joins the Stampeders
The Stampeders have signed American defensive lineman Damontre Moore, a player with extensive experience in the NFL. Moore played 66 games over eight seasons with various NFL teams and one game for the Toronto Argonauts in 2022. His addition brings valuable experience to the Stampeders’ defensive line.
The Stampeders’ roster updates reflect their commitment to strengthening the team and securing a playoff berth in the competitive CFL. As the season progresses, these changes will play a pivotal role in their pursuit of success.
