    Pierre Lavertu now listed on Stampeders' roster for rookie camp ---- indication that he has already signed a contract, or that the signing is imminent?

    Things are looking positive!

    Arash Madani was just on the FAN960 and stated that the Stamps and the Lavertu camp are "not close" and he will not be on the field for Rookie Camp.

    So, some conflicting information to muddy the waters this morning.

    Stampeders lock up No. 1 draft pick Lavertu
    Pierre Lavertu will not holdout after all.
    Sportsnet has learned the Calgary Stampeders and the No. 1 pick of the 2014 CFL draft have reached an agreement on a three-year contract, allowing the three-time all-Canadian offensive lineman to report to the club’s rookie camp on time.
    Lavertu was close to missing the opening day of pre-season practices Thursday, while his agent and the Stampeders hammered out his rookie contract.
    Regarded as the most pro-ready prospect in a thin draft class, Lavertu is expected to be an immediate contributor on the Calgary offensive line. Since the organization already has a centre – 2013 CFL rookie of the year Brett Jones – occupying Lavertu’s natural position, the Stamps will likely use the six-foot-three, 300-pound Laval Rouge et Or product in the interior of its offensive line.
