Stamps return man could make Eskimos receiver go streaking

Stampeders third round draft pick, Tunde Adeleke might be the cause of a streaker in Edmonton.

Calgary drafted the defensive back and return man this past May, signing the Carleton product to a contract twice, and he’s set to get some increased opportunities as a returner with American Roy Finch suspended for two games, after violating the league’s substance abuse policy.

An explosive returner with the Ravens, Adeleke led all USports football universities with five return touchdowns in 2016. The 21-year-old speedster, who ran the fastest 40-yard time at the CFL combine (4.58 seconds), returned two punts for 48 yards – long 31 – and one missed field goal for 12 yards in Calgary’s first pre-season game.

The news of his chance to return more kicks has travelled to a former teammate with the provincial rival, Edmonton Eskimos. Receiver Nate Behar, who ended a contract standoff with the Eskimos last week, tweeted about what he will do if Adeleke takes a return all the way back for a touchdown.

Adeleke takes a punt return back 71 yards for a touchdown.

Your move, Nate. Be on the lookout in the streets of Edmonton.
