    Shawn Lemon cut by NFL's San Francisco 49ers

    The Calgary Stampeders may be the recipients of a huge boost in time for their annual home-and-home CFL series with the Edmonton Eskimos.
    Shawn Lemon, the former Calgary Stampeders defensive lineman, was released by the San Francisco 49ers on Monday, as NFL clubs pare down their rosters in time for the 2015 season.
    He’s a free-agent free to sign with any team in either the NFL or CFL.

    Calgary Stampeders getting timely picks from players young and old
    One pick was returned to the house.
    The other ended up on the front porch.
    Calgary Stampeders defensive back Jamar Wall’s interception return for a touchdown on the second play from scrimmage in the second half turned the tide of Saturday’s CFL game.
    A slim 8-3 halftime lead turned into a more comfortable 15-3 and the Red & White went on to roll the Winnipeg Blue Bombers 36-8.

    Stamps rookie Durant proving to be a bull in a china shop
    No, there is no such clause in Lemar Durant’s contract that stipulates he will only catch a ball thrown 10 yards or more.
    It just seems that way.
    “I don’t know if it’s in there, but that’s what it’s turned out to be,” grinned Calgary Stampeders’ receivers coach Pete Costanza. “He’s such a hard runner that right now when he’s catching it and he’s playing with that reckless abandon, he’s been able to do the job after the catch, get those good YAC yards.”

    Time to hand out some mid-season Stampeders awards
    At 7-2 through the midway point of their season, riding high in first place with a four-game win streak heading into Labour Day, the Calgary Stampeders are getting contributions all over the field.
    Once again, the Stamps should be contenders for a bunch of end-of-season awards, so it’s time to take a look at who is performing the best for this team with nine games in the books.
    There is no sense giving out a report card for this group. They are all passing with flying colours, and there is simply no area of the team that hasn’t contributed to victories.
