Elite cover man Tommie Campbell signs with Alouettes: report

Defensive back Tommie Campbell moving to Montreal, according to Danny Austin of Postmedia.

The standout former Stampeders cover man did not allow a touchdown during the entire 2017 regular season, yet he was left off the CFL all-star team. He was part of a secondary that was the toughest to pass against league-wide in 2017.

Campbell has played in 35 games for the Stamps providing lockdown coverage at the boundary corner spot. He has 108 tackles and five interceptions over two seasons in Calgary.

Originally drafted by Tennessee in 2011, seventh round, 251st overall, Campbell made 37 tackles, recovered one fumble and forced another and he has a 65-yard punt return touchdown to his credit.

The 30-year-old’s combination of size – six-foot-three, 203 pounds – and speed (4.31-second 40-yard dash) coming out of California University of Pennsylvania are rare.
