Calgary selected Deane in the third round (21st overall) of the 2010 CFL Canadian Draft and he signed on May 10, 2011.
After sitting out the first four games of the season as he continued his recovery from the broken leg that ended his 2011 season, Deane started 14 games, two playoff contests and the Grey Cup and was a mainstay of a Calgary offensive line that saw frequent personnel change due to injuries. He saw action at both left guard and right tackle and was an integral part of an o-line that helped Jon Cornish win the CFL rushing title and allowed the Stamps offence to lead the CFL in rushing touchdowns and total touchdowns while ranking second in points, rushing yards, first downs and pass-completion percentage and third in fewest sacks allowed.
Deane suited up for nine games in his rookie season and made starts on both sides of the ball. He made his professional debut on July 1 as he was the starter at right guard in the place of the injured Dimitri Tsoumpas. He made a second start at that position on July 8 before Tsoumpas returned to action. After serving as a backup offensive lineman in Week 5, the versatile Deane was pressed into duty on the defensive line when a string of injuries hit the Stamps at that position. He was used as a starter at defensive tackle and played a total of four games on defence, recording seven tackles including one tackle for loss. He made a season-high three tackles in an Aug. 6 contest against Hamilton. Deane later returned to the offensive line and served as a backup until suffering a season-ending leg injury during a Week 16 contest in Toronto.
Deane started all 13 games at right tackle for Michigan State as a senior in 2010 and twice was named the Spartans’ offensive lineman of the week. The Spartans were 11-2 and earned a trip to the Capital One Bowl. Deane was part of an offensive unit that averaged 29.5 points per game and ranked third in the Big 10 with 236.4 passing yards per game. Deane played in three games as a junior and made his first career start at right guard in a game against Central Michigan. He came to Michigan State as a nose tackle but made the switch to the offensive line during his redshirt freshman season.
Deane played high school football for four years at Newtonbrook Secondary School in North York, Ont. He also played junior football for the Metro Toronto Wildcats. Deane’s father, sisters and brothers all live in Calgary. He majored in interdisciplinary studies in social science-human resources.
