Stampeders, Argos complete trade involving star receiver Eric Rogers prior to 2021 CFL free agency

The Calgary Stampeders and Toronto Argonauts have made a big deal, per sources.

Toronto has acquired the rights to receiver Eric Rogers, defensive end Cordarro Law, and defensive back Robertson Daniel from Calgary in exchange for a fifth round pick in the 2021 Canadian draft, and a third round pick in the 2021 Global draft. The Stamps will send their sixth round pick in the 2021 CFL Draft and their fourth round pick in the 2021 Global Draft to Toronto.

Two weeks ago, 3DownNation reported that Rogers and the Stamps were at a contract impasse.

Rogers is a two-time West Division all-star who has made 27 touchdown receptions in just 45 career regular season games, making him easily one of the CFL’s best red zone targets. The six-foot-four, 215-pound target has two 1,000-yard, ten-touchdown seasons with the Stamps.

The 32-year-old Law had a strong season in 2019 when he made 41 tackles, ten sacks, and two forced fumbles. He has made 32 career sacks over five CFL seasons, all of which have come in Calgary.

Daniel made three interceptions in eight games with the Stamps in 2019. He is best-known for playing an entire game while wearing Joker face paint.

The trade allows the Argos to try and sign Rogers, Law and Daniel prior to the opening of free agency on Tuesday, February 9 at noon eastern time. Even though the negotiating window begins on Sunday, January 31 at noon eastern time, Toronto has the chance to put pen to paper prior to the market opening.
