Bo Levi Mitchell enters the final year of his current Stampeders pact in 2018.
Calgary has been the place where Mitchell was developed into one of the league’s premier quarterbacks and general manager John Hufnagel knows what he wants to do next.
“We haven’t really entered into any discussions with his agent yet, but both of them know that we want Bo to be here,” Hufnagel told TSN‘s Dave Naylor.
Mitchell has started 68 games going 56-10-2 for the Stampeders completing over 65 per cent of his passes for 19,349 yards, 115 touchdowns and 45 interceptions. He guided Calgary to a Grey Cup in 2014, earning game MVP honours, and won the league’s Most Outstanding Player award in 2016.
“Bo made a commitment three years ago when he signed the four-year contract that he wanted to be in Calgary,” Hufnagel said. “Him and his wife have worked extremely hard to be part of the community and I don’t see that being disrupted.”
