The Calgary Stampeders have re-signed global receiver Andres Salgado.
Salgado was the Stamps’ first-round selection, ninth overall in the inaugural Canadian Football League Mexican draft. A native of Mexico City, Salgado appeared in 15 regular-season games for Calgary during the 2019 season and recorded one special teams tackle. He also dressed for the Stamps’ West semi-final loss against Winnipeg.
“Andres has worked extremely hard on and off the field from the moment he joined the Stampeders and has made steady improvement as a player,” Stampeders president and general manager John Hufnagel said.
“He has continued to show that work ethic and dedication this past year as he chose to remain in Calgary and I look forward to seeing him back on the field in 2021.”
Prior to joining the Stampeders, Salgado starred for Condors CDMX in the Mexican league. In his final season with the Condors, he led the Liga de Futbol Americano with an average of 18.9 yards per catch, totaling 31 receptions for 586 yards. Salgado had a 44-yard touchdown catch in the Condors’ victory in the league’s championship game, the Mexico Bowl.
