    Stampeders ink old nemesis Greg Carr
    Former Riders receiver lasted less than a week on the free-agent market
    Vicki Hall, Calgaryherald.com

    The Calgary Stampeders have first-hand knowledge of the carnage Greg Carr can inflict on a defensive secondary.

    After all, the sky-scraping receiver caught two touchdowns — including one that shaped up as the game-winner for the Saskatchewan Roughriders with just 52 seconds on the clock — in the 2012 West Division semifinal.

    Only a 68-yard touchdown bomb to Romby Bryant — unleashed by Drew Tate with 20 seconds remaining — allowed the Stampeders to advance with a 36-30 victory at McMahon Stadium.

    Some eight months after the heartbreak, Carr is switching sides in one of the Canadian Football League’s fiercest rivalries.

    The 27-year-old former Winnipeg Blue Bomber/Eskimo/Roughrider is expected to report this morning to McMahon for his first day of work on the Calgary practice roster.

    Perhaps he can find his home here in Calgary, although we have a juicy REC core as it is.

    Why do we need him? Import receiver isn't an issue. Canadian receiver is.

    The 4 imports are the main targets and Carr will be depth for them.

    The 3 non-imports - Arthur, Cote and Parker - combined for 4 catches last game.

    I like this addition as it brings in depth. Adding him to the line up would not be dropping talent wise.

    Don't forget that Brad Sinopoli is now in the receiver equation.

    And Brad had 5 catches himself last game .... Seems he also gained attention south of the border. Good for him!
