Stamps confirm Eric Rogers has agreed to contract

All-star receiver Eric Rogers is returning to the Calgary Stampeders.

The CFL team is hoping the 27-year-old can pick up where he left off in 2015, when he totalled 87 catches for 1,448 yards and 10 touchdowns before heading to the NFL.

“I think a deal has been agreed upon, but it’s always conditional on the physical,” Stampeder head coach Dave Dickenson confirmed 3DownNation’s report Wednesday.

“I’m excited to see him. I haven’t seen him in a couple of years. He’s had a couple things surgically he’s had to fix.”

Rogers attracted interest from several NFL teams and signed with the San Francisco 49ers in 2016.

But he tore a knee ligament in training camp that year and never played a snap for the 49ers, who released him a year later.

The six-foot-three, 210-pound receiver boasted a vertical of about 90 centimetres and won a lot of jump-ball catches for the Stampeders.

Rogers won a Grey Cup with Calgary in 2014 and was named to the league’s all-star team the following season.

He was both a football and triple-jump star at California Lutheran.
