The Calgary Stampeders have signed American offensive lineman Julian Good-Jones to a two-year contract extension through 2023.

The Iowa State product made seven regular season starts and one postseason start at right tackle as a rookie in 2021. He was part of a unit that allowed the second-fewest sacks in the league and blocked for running back Ka’Deem Carey, who led all ball carriers with seven rushing touchdowns and was second in the league in both rushing yards and yards from scrimmage.

The six-foot-five, 301-pound blocker came to the Stampeders after attending training camp with the National Football League’s Philadelphia Eagles in 2020.

In college, Good-Jones played and started 49 games over four seasons at Iowa State. He was honourable mention all-Big 12 Conference in 2017 and 2018 and was named first-team all-conference in 2019.

As a senior, Good-Jones helped pave the way for an Iowa State offence which broke school records for total offence, touchdowns, passing yards, and yards per play. The Cyclones also conceded just 16 sacks, the fewest in the Big 12.

The Stamps also formally announced the signing of national defensive lineman Alain Pae.
