LB Deron Mayo re-signs in Calgary

Linebacker Deron Mayo is staying in Calgary.

Mayo has spent six seasons with the Stampeders but only played a single game in 2017 after sustaining a knee injury.

Hufnagel said Mayo is still working on rehabilitating his knee and hopes he can return to the field in 2018.

“He has been an excellent player and strong leader for us and his return would provide us with a tremendous boost,” said Hufnagel. “We will re-assess Deron’s medical status prior to the start of training camp.”

Mayo was a member of Calgary’s Grey Cup-winning team in 2014 and has played 87 career games with the Stampeders.
