The Calgary Stampeders have signed former Saskatchewan Roughriders receiver Jordan Williams-Lambert.

In 2021, he had 14 receptions for 152 yards in four games for the green and white before seeing his season end due to a wrist injury.

The 27-year-old Williams-Lambert spent three seasons with the Saskatchewan Roughriders and was the West Division finalist for the CFL’s Most Outstanding Rookie award in 2018. He made 81 catches for 973 yards and four touchdowns in 24 career games with the Riders.

“Jordan is a big-bodied receiver who made a significant impact in the CFL before encountering an unfortunate injury,” general manager John Hufnagel said. “We look forward to seeing him recapture his form as a member of the Stampeders.”

“Thank you to the Calgary organization for blessing me with an opportunity to further my career and join a winning culture,” Williams-Lambert said. “I look forward to contributing and chasing this year’s Grey Cup trophy.”

In addition to his time with Saskatchewan, Williams-Lambert attended NFL training camps with the New Orleans Saints and Chicago Bears. He spent time on New Orleans’ practice roster in 2016.

In the NCAA, Williams-Lambert played 43 games and made 30 starts over four seasons at Ball State University. After seeing limited action as a freshman with the Cardinals, he broke out as a sophomore with 72 catches for 1,050 yards and 10 touchdowns and was named third-team all-Mid-American Conference. The six-foot-three, 228-pound pass catcher was second-team all-conference the next two seasons and finished his career with 200 receptions for 2,723 yards and 24 touchdowns.
