The Calgary Stampeders have signed American receiver/defensive back Brendan Langley and American receiver Felton Davis III.

The six-foot, 199-pound receiver was drafted by the XFL’s Houston Roughnecks but left the team to join the practice squad of the Seattle Seahawks.

He also contributed in the return game, registering an average of 11.7 yards on 21 punt returns while scoring two touchdowns in addition to three kickoff returns for an average of 24.3 yards.

As a senior, Langley was named first-team all-Southland Conference at defensive back and punt returner.

Davis signed with the Kansas City Chiefs as an undrafted free agent and spent the 2019 season on the club’s injury list.

The six-foot-three, 211-pound target played 39 games over four seasons at Michigan State and had 100 career catches for 1,450 yards and 14 touchdowns. He was named third-team all-Big Ten following his junior season after leading the team with 55 catches, 776 receiving yards and nine touchdowns.
