    Stamps lose three in CFL expansion draft
    The Calgary Stampeders said goodby to Kevin Glenn, J'Micheal Deane and Eric Fraser in the CFL exapansion draft. Our CFL insider Arash Madani joined the Big Show today to talk about what the expansion Ottawa REDBLACKS will look like this season.

    The Ottawa Redblacks have selected QB Kevin Glenn and OL J'Micheal Deane in Monday's 2013 CFL Expansion Draft. The Redblacks play their inaugural season in 2014.
    Import quarterback Kevin Glenn, who spent two seasons with the Stampeders, was selected by the Ottawa Redblacks in the first round of the expansion draft.

    Stamps say goodbye to quarterback Kevin Glenn after losing him in CFL expansion draft
    Nik Lewis sounded positively wistful Monday upon learning of Kevin Glenn’s departure to the Ottawa Redblacks via the Canadian Football League expansion draft.
    His starting quarterback, gone. His roommate on the road, gone. His on-field partner in crime, gone.
    “It sucks to lose a friend like that in a draft situation,” the Calgary Stampeders slotback said via cellphone from Montana, taking a break on the gruelling 27-hour drive to his off-season home in Texas. “But they get a great player. It’s a great opportunity for him, I think, because I really believe through the first part of his career, he was labelled.” Stampeders goodbye/9293822/story.html

    Fraser leaves Calgary with unfinished business, but he’s embracing new opportunity in Ottawa
    When versatile offensive lineman J’Micheal Deane’s name was called out by the Ottawa RedBlacks’ TV-friendly tag-team tandem of head coach Rick Campbell and GM Marcel Desjardins as their Stampeder selection in the second round (first for non-imports) of Monday’s CFL expansion draft, Eric Fraser involuntarily felt himself relax, ever-so-slightly.
    “Surprised?” sighed the ex-Calgary starting free safety a couple of hours later. “Well, a little bit. But it’s all good. I mean, I always knew it was a possibility. That’s the football business, right? That’s pro sports. You can move at any time.
    “I did think after the first round, though, that I’d be OK.” Eric Fraser leaves Calgary/9293830/story.html

    QBs Glenn, DeMarco welcome new starts with new squad
    Kevin Glenn has the edge in professional football experience, but Thomas DeMarco knows about being part of a new team from the ground up.
    Those, Redblacks fans, are the quarterbacks trusted with leading your new Canadian Football League franchise after being selected in the first round of the expansion draft on Monday.
    “The biggest thing is we all came together for one common goal: We all wanted to win,” DeMarco said of his 2009 experience at Old Dominion University, where he set what are still Monarchs’ single-season records for rushing attempts (163), yards (892) and touchdowns (17).

    Calgary Stampeders say goodbye to QB Kevin Glenn
    In the end, it played out exactly how most around the CFL expected it to.
    Gone is quarterback Kevin Glenn.
    Gone is offensive lineman J’Micheal Deane.
    Gone is safety Eric Fraser.
    They are three players at three positions the Calgary Stampeders had stocked with depth over the years, and they knew, inevitably, something had to give when the Ottawa RedBlacks went to work in Monday’s CFL Expansion Draft.

    The CFL's ninth franchise - the Ottawa Redblacks - completed their expansion draft on Monday in Ottawa.
    The first round of picks featured eight import players and was highlighted by Calgary Stampeders quarterback Kevin Glenn.
    Glenn, a Detroit native, has played 13 years in the league for the Stampeders, Saskatchewan Roughriders, Winnipeg Blue Bombers and Hamilton Tiger-Cats. He was a CFL East All-Star in 2007, and is currently 10th on league's list of all-time leading passers with 36,666 yards.

    Kevin Glenn will bring class and great leadership to the Red Blacks.
    With Glenn's departure, the QB debate for next season has just begun.

    Good luck to all three players in Ottawa.

    With the depth in the organization, I think there departures won't hurt the team too much.

    Too bad the CFL didn't release a list of each team publicly. It would created even more debate and discussion.
