    The Stamps now cannot lose a kicker and can protect 2 more Non-Imports - which is great in my opinion.

    Technically they can protect 4 more non-imports. Protect 8 in the second round + the 2 kickers.

    Aside from Kevin Glenn, (and maybe Walker), not exactly a list of ''household names", eh?

    Yeah, but since they can't have a kicker taken now, they don't technically have to protect them.

    They're just "off the table" now.

    Little bit of a surprise. Perhaps they have deals in place with some of the teams because honestly when teams can protect 10 imports and otherwise start 17 you'd think that Ottawa would've selected 6 starters and 2 quarterbacks.

    DeMarco and Glenn will make a strong initial pairing at QB. I thought perhaps that they would've let the QB situation in Calgary work itself out and gotten a QB that way. I guess this way they got to decide rather than Huf decide for them.

    Yeah, that was a little quick - did they have catering waiting maybe?

    Hufnagel thanks Kevin Glenn for his contributions as a Stampeder:

    “Kevin has been a great contributor to our success the past two seasons and we wish him the best in Ottawa,” said Stampeders head coach and general manager John Hufnagel. “Kevin was a true professional on and off the field and I thank him for all the great things he has done for us.
    “We’re sad to see Kevin go, but we’re confident that our quarterback situation is in good hands with Drew Tate and Bo Levi Mitchell, who benefitted a great deal from having been Kevin’s teammate these past two years.”

    I guess we won't know until we see who Ottawa selects as Canadian players (who typically, if they're starters, cost comparatively more) in the next round, but aside from Glenn's contract, they certainly didn't appear to pick any high-priced imports in the first round.

    So far, it looks like they may be attempting to save themselves some "cap room" for the Canucks...and likely also for CFL free agency bidding in February....
