Begelton Released To Pursue Nfl Opportunity

The Calgary Stampeders have released American receiver Reggie Begelton in order to allow him to pursue an opportunity in the National Football League. The 26-year-old Beaumont, Tex., product was slated to become a free agent in February.

In 2019, Begelton was a CFL all-star and earned the Stamps’ nomination for the CFL’s Most Outstanding Player award after becoming just the fifth player in franchise history to record at least 100 catches in a season. He finished the regular season second in the league with 102 receptions and third in both receiving yards (1,444) and receiving touchdowns (10).

In 33 career regular-season games over three seasons with Calgary, Begelton had 149 catches for 2,335 yards and 12 touchdowns.
