Former Calgary Stampeders’ offensive lineman Julian Good-Jones has officially signed a reserve/futures contract with the Philadelphia Eagles.
The 25-year-old was released by the Stamps on Monday in order to pursue opportunities south of the border during the CFL’s annual NFL window. The club will retain his rights through the 2023 season.
Good-Jones had a breakout second season with the Stampeders, starting 15 games at right tackle for the league’s best offensive line. Calgary allowed just 17 sacks while producing an average of 6.4 yards per carry and 135.3 yards per game in the running game — all tops in the league by a wide margin.
The six-foot-five, 319-pound blocker made seven regular season starts and one postseason start at right tackle as a rookie in 2021. He came to the Stampeders after attending training camp with the Eagles in 2020.
In college, Good-Jones played and started 49 games over four seasons at Iowa State. He was an honourable mention all-Big 12 Conference selection 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 that 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.
