The Edmonton Elks have signed American receiver Kenny Stafford.

Stafford has spent parts of four seasons with the EE Football Team over the course of his seven-year CFL career. The Columbus, OH native’s most productive season came as a member of Edmonton’s 2015 Grey Cup winning team. During that championship season, Stafford recorded 47 receptions for 732 yards and a team-leading nine touchdowns.

Stafford has played in 70 career games catching 194 passes for 2,626 yards and 18 touchdowns, averaging 13.5 yards per reception. The 31-year-old has had stints in Montreal, Winnipeg, Saskatchewan, Calgary, and Edmonton during his time in the CFL. 

After four years in the NCAA with the University of Toledo Rockets, Stafford went unselected in the 2012 NFL Draft. He had a training camp stint with the Atlanta Falcons prior to coming north of the border to play in Canada.
