The Calgary Stampeders have re-signed veteran Canadian fullback William Langlais.

“Since joining the Stamps in 2015, Will has contributed both on offence and special teams and I’m pleased that he has chosen to remain in Calgary,” said president and general manager John Hufnagel.

“I couldn’t see myself playing for another team,” said Langlais, a 30-year-old product of the Universite de Sherbrooke. “I missed the city of Calgary during this long layoff since we were last on the field so I’m really happy to be back. My goal is to work hard and continue the winning tradition we have here.”

Langlais appeared in nine regular-season games in 2019 and had four receptions for 54 yards including a career-long 33-yarder, one carry for three yards and one special-teams tackle. He also played in the Western Semi-Final and had one kickoff return for 13 yards and one special-teams tackle.

For his career, Langlais has 54 special-teams tackles and 13 receptions for 189 yards.
