    Calgary Stampeders News Roundup for June 22, 2015


    Now that’s he made the team, rookie receiver Lemar Durant knows he’s still got a lot of work ahead of him.
    “I feel I still have a long ways to go, it’s only just the beginning right now,” says the Simon Fraser product. “I felt that I had a good game last game but there are a lot of things I need to work on so I’ve just got to make sure I stay focused and try to get better every week.”
    Durant played the second half of the Stamps’ pre-season finale on Friday night and his “good game” saw him lead all the receivers on the field with five catches for 85 yards. Among them, he had an impressive leaping catch for a 25-yard gain and a 14-yarder just short of the goal-line.

    After all, he carried the ball just three times for a grand total of three yards.

    Kick returner Cunningham hoping to build on rookie season
    It’ll take more than a 74-yard kick-off return to impress Sederrik Cunningham.
    “I’ve got to finish, though,” sighed the sophomore Calgary Stampeder, the author of said lengthy return. “That’s all I’ve got to say about that. Nice return, but I pride myself on finishing stuff. Last year, that would have been OK; this year, you have to finish those things, so I’ll do better on that.”
    In the Stamps’ 37-29 pre-season victory in Regina on Friday night, Cunningham contributed 116 total return yards and was one of the standouts of the game. It’s that long return in the second quarter that still haunts him, though.

    Examining the CFL's biggest cuts: Calgary, Montreal ditch numerous veterans
    The CFL's teams finished their cuts to a 46-man-active roster Saturday night, and while a lot of the names released would be unfamiliar (some so much so that the league website spelled them wrong) to many fans of the league, there were still were some notable cuts. In particular, the Calgary Stampeders and Montreal Alouettes got rid of some well-known veterans. Here's a look at five of the most notable cuts:
