    Calgary Stampeders general manager John Hufnagel is pleased to announce the re-signing of national receiver Anthony Parker. Parker was set to become a free agent in February. As per team policy, terms of the agreement were not disclosed.

    Parker is coming off his best year as a pro, registering 31 catches for a career-high 443 yards and adding two touchdowns in 18 games. He also had eight carries for 56 yards, three punt returns for 16 yards, four kickoff returns for 77 yards and a missed field goal return for 22 yards.

    He was the team’s leading receiver in the final regular-season game, hauling in four passes for 122 yards and scoring his longest career touchdown on a 70-yard pass from Drew Tate.

    Parker started in both playoffs games, totalling five catches for 48 yards and adding a two-point convert.

    “Anthony has worked very hard during his time with the Stamps,” said Hufnagel. “He’s made some big plays for us when called upon and has made progress every season. I believe he has the potential to grow even more and I look forward to watching his continued development.”

    Parker has spent five seasons with the Stampeders after being selected third overall by the club in 2011 CFL Draft. He has played a total of 72 regular-season games and recorded 91 receptions for 1,109 yards and eight touchdowns along with 23 carries for 190 yards.

    “I’m excited for the opportunity to continue my career in the place that it started,” said Parker. “This is the best organization in the CFL top down and I expect big things to come in 2016. I can’t wait to be a part of it.”
