The Calgary Stampeders have signed national linebacker Jordan Herdman-Reed.

The six-foot, 235-pound defender has played 69 career CFL regular season games since being selected by the B.C. Lions in the seventh round of the 2017 CFL Draft out of Simon Fraser University.

The 28-year-old dressed for 52 games over three seasons with the Lions, recording 95 defensive tackles, 44 special teams tackles, three sacks, and one forced fumble. He signed with the Saskatchewan Roughriders as a free agent ahead of the 2021 season and spent two years with the club, recording one defensive tackle and six special teams tackles.

The Winnipeg native signed with B.C. in February but was released by the team this past week alongside veteran defensive end Shawn Lemon.

The Stampeders have also added Canadian defensive back Demetri Royer to the six-game injured list.

Calgary opened the preseason on Monday with a 29-24 victory over the Edmonton Elks. The club’s second and final preseason game will take place on Thursday, June 1 against B.C.
