The five players, who played special teams for the Stampeders this season, have a combined 28 years of CFL experience.

The Toronto Argonauts also extended two Canadian players, locking up defensive linemen Hassan Barry and John Biewald through 2020. Both players joined the Argos this year.

Elsewhere, the Hamilton Tiger-Cats re-signed three Canadians — defensive back Nicholas Parisotto, linebacker Dillon Grondin and wide receiver Mitch O’Connor — as well as two Americans in defensive tackle Bobby Richardson and offensive lineman Isame Faciane.

Note to readers: This is a corrected version of an earlier story. It corrects the spelling of Charlie Power's surname in the second paragraph.
