Stampeders Re-sign Andres Salgado

The Calgary Stampeders have re-signed global receiver Andres Salgado.

Salgado was the Stamps’ first-round selection (ninth overall) in the inaugural Canadian Football League-Liga de Futbol Americano (Mexico) draft in January of 2019. A native of Mexico City, Salgado appeared in 15 regular-season games for the Stampeders during the 2019 season and recorded one special-teams tackle. He also dressed for the Stamps’ West semifinal contest against Winnipeg.

Prior to joining the Stampeders, Salgado starred for Condors CDMX in the Mexican league. In his final season with the Condors, he led the LFA with an average of 18.9 yards per catch and had 31 receptions for 586 yards. Salgado had a 44-yard touchdown catch in the Condors’ victory in the league’s championship game, the Mexico Bowl.

“Andres has worked extremely hard on and off the field from the moment he joined the Stampeders and has made steady improvement as a player,” said Stampeders president and general manager John Hufnagel. “He has continued to show that work ethic and dedication this past year as he chose to remain in Calgary and I look forward to seeing him back on the field in 2021.”

“I’m happy and grateful for another opportunity to compete and help this team achieve another championship,” said Salgado.
