    Al Cameron of the Calgary Herald is reporting that Ken Yon Rambo has been released by the Stampeders.

    "The Calgary Stampeders and Ken Yon Rambo are apparently going their separate ways.

    According to a report form Sportsnet's Arash Madani the Stamps have cut ties with the gifted receiver after seven years with the team."

    Can't say I am surprised or shocked. Rambo can't get on the field because he is always hurt. It was time to make a change. Once he's healthy, I am sure he will resurface with another team likely Toronto.

    Releasing Nick Lewis would be a disaster.

    Rambo? Not so much.

    Again, he had ONE really good year that everyone continues to look back on, and a bunch of hardly-better-than-average years that people seem to forget.

    Talley in Rambo out. McDaniels is an upgrade over Rambo.

    With Rambo to be released, will this give the Stamps more cap relief?

    It should as Rambo is a 7 year vet. The sad thing is the way it ended for Ken Yon. But the guy can't play so something had to be done. This was the right move.

    Called it.


    Well sort of anyway. I pretty much said it would either happen (A) out of camp or (B) during the season when he inevitably got hurt again. Instead "B" happened during "A".


    No wait.


    Yes.


    What?


    Are you as confused as I am right now?







    Hmmmm lets just stick with I called it.



    Sort of.

    One has to wonder how different his career would have ended if not for that horrible horse collar tackle by Glatt. He's never been the same since and that's too bad because he was an explosive receiver prior to that injury.

    Yeah, Glatt got a slap on the wrist... Took an injury like that before the CFL did anything.

    So it looks like Rambo will meet with Argos' doctors tomorrow and although he won't pass a medical, he will rehab with the team and if all goes well, he will be placed on their practice roster.

    Is Copeland still in T.O.????

    That would be cool to see them playing on the same team again.

    You will be missed #85!!!!

    So many great Rambo memories over the years. Who could forget his TD grab in the 2008 West Final at the end of the first half.

    Very tough reality that football is indeed a business.
