Calgary Stampeders deal three players to Toronto Argonauts ahead of free agency

·1 min read

CALGARY — The Calgary Stampeders have dealt the rights of receiver Eric Rogers, defensive lineman Cordarro Law and defensive back Robertson Daniel to the Toronto Argonauts.

The three men are due to become free agents Feb. 9.

The Stampeders included a sixth-round draft pick (47th overall) and a fourth-round pick in the global draft in 2021 in the package.

Calgary gets Toronto's fifth-round pick (43rd overall) and third-round global draft pick in return.

“Unfortunately, we had to make some tough decisions with some very good players and we weren’t able to keep them all,” Stampeders general manager John Hufnagel said in a statement Sunday.

“These players simply did not fit within our salary structure."

Hufnagel pointed out the players will be familiar with Argos head coach Ryan Dinwiddie, who was previously Calgary's quarterbacks coach.

Law played 47 games over six seasons in Calgary and won a Grey Cup with the Stampeders in 2018.

Rogers was part of Calgary's Grey Cup victories in 2014 and 2018 and appeared in 45 games over fours season with the club.

He was a CFL all-star in 2015 and twice a divisional all-star. Daniel played eight games for Calgary in 2019.
