The Calgary Stampeders have signed quarterback Jake Maier.
Maier played 36 games over three seasons at the University of California, Davis. He completed 992 of 1,495 career passing attempts (66.4 percent) for 11,163 yards and 88 touchdowns against 33 interceptions. Maier was the Big Sky Conference’s newcomer of the year in 2017 and in 2018 he was the offensive player of the year and first-team quarterback.
Maier played at Long Beach City College in 2016 and was first-team all-state after throwing for a league-leading 38 touchdowns and setting school records in touchdown passes and yards with 3,689.
After Nick Arbuckle was traded and signed with the Ottawa Redblacks, the Stamps are looking for a backup quarterback to emerge behind Bo Levi Mitchell. Maier joins Montell Cozart, Marcus McMaryion, and Dakota Prukop as quarterbacks on Calgary’s roster.
