    The competitiveness of the defensive line during this 2013 Calgary Stampeders’ training camp has been well-documented. It wasn’t going to take much to elevate one player above another in the pecking order.

    Finally, after weeks of battling, Cordarro Law can breathe a small sigh of relief.

    “It definitely makes you work harder,” insisted the 6-foot-2, 262-pounder out of Southern Mississippi. “You’ve got two other guys, (Stevie) Baggs was here and (Shawn) Lemon; he came in and stole the show. So it makes you play harder and be on your task every day. Any little slip up and you might have lost your job. It was crazy ’cause any one of us could have been gone. Things worked out perfect.”

    As it turned out, not so perfect for Baggs as he was the odd man out when the Stamps’ made their final cuts over the weekend and Law will now start his first full season in Calgary.

    “He played very well last year at the end of the year, had an excellent training camp and he’s part of the three-defensive end package that we’ll rotate,” commented head coach/GM John Hufnagel.
