Stampeders sign former NFL defensive back Ashton Lampkin

The Calgary Stampeders have signed former NFL defensive back Ashton Lampkin.

Lampkin signed with Kansas City as an undrafted free agent in May 2017. He attended training camp and played in four pre-season games, recording four tackles. However, Lampkin suffered a torn ACL in the Chiefs final exhibition contest and spent the 2017 season on injured reserve.

The Cleveland Browns added Lampkin to the practice roster in December 2018. And after the Browns released him in May, the Washington Redskins inked Lampkin to a deal. He played in four more pre-season games, making five tackles and defending one pass, although, Washington released him among final training camp cuts in 2019.

In 55 games at Oklahoma State University, Lampkin made 111 career tackles including one tackle for loss. He added one forced fumble, 12 pass breakups and five interceptions including one returned for a touchdown. He was Oklahoma State’s special-teams MVP in 2013 and named to the academic all-Big 12 team the same year.
