So here we are. Calgary Stampeders have set their opening day roster!
Big winner out of camp is defensive back Tommie Campbell. The tall corner pushed Brandon McDonald out of the picture and made the club. McDonald has the physical appearance of former Stampeder Brandon Browner. Can he play like him? That’s a tall order–pun intended.
Another great story is the selection of Andrew Buckley as the #3 QB. Amazing story for a local guy who worked his way up the ranks to the CFL.
One other note. The team elected to keep both Kamar Jordan and Bakari Grant at receiver. Exactly how they will fit them into a game is a bit of a mystery. However, both will contribute when asked.
Roy Finch came in and ran his way to the principal returner spot. The challenge is to keep it up. Stamps have had too much instability at that position.
We will see how these decisions play out, starting Saturday night in Vancouver.
