The Calgary Stampeders announced on Monday that they’ve resigned receivers DaVaris Daniels and Anthony Parker.
Daniels was the CFL’s Most Outstanding Rookie in 2016 and has played in 24 career regular-season games for the Stamps. He’s recorded 98 receptions for 1,628 yards and 13 touchdowns.
“In his two years with us, DaVaris has shown the ability to be one of the CFL’s most dangerous and productive receivers,” said Stampeders president and general manager John Hufnagel in a release. “I look forward to watching him continue to improve his game and taking the next step in his career in 2018.”
“Calgary took me in and gave me a chance when I was facing uncertainty about my football career, so I owe it to them to come back,” said Daniels. “After watching my father’s team win a Super Bowl, I’m more determined than ever for us to take another run at the Grey Cup and to win a championship.”
Parker has played 108 career regular-season games in seven seasons for the Stampeders and has 178 catches for 2,245 yards and 15 touchdowns. He’s played all 18 games in each of the past four seasons and has only missed one game since the start of the 2013 campaign.
“Anthony has been a mainstay of the Stampeders and I’m pleased that he has chosen to re-sign with the team,” said Hufnagel.
“It’s very important for me to be able to keep my family in Calgary so I’m happy to be back,” said Parker. “It’s long been a goal of mine to start and finish my career in the same place and this gets me one step closer to that goal. After the past two years, we still have unfinished business and I believe we still have a championship-calibre team that has a good chance to win the Grey Cup.”
