The Calgary Stampeders have completed a trade with the Toronto Argonauts, acquiring Toronto’s fifth-round pick (43rd overall) in the 2021 Canadian Football League draft and the third-round pick in the 2021 global draft. In exchange, Calgary sends the playing rights to receiver Eric Rogers, defensive lineman Cordarro Law, and defensive back Robertson Daniel to Toronto in addition to Calgary’s sixth-round pick (47th overall) in the 2021 draft and the fourth-round pick in the 2021 global draft.

Rogers, Law and Daniel are all scheduled to become free agents on Feb. 9.

“Unfortunately, we had to make some tough decisions with some very good players and we weren’t able to keep them all,” said Stampeders president and general manager John Hufnagel. “These players simply did not fit within our salary structure but with Ryan Dinwiddie and John Murphy being in Toronto, I’m glad they will now get an opportunity to sign with a team with which they have some familiarity.

“I thank all three for everything they’ve done for the Stampeders, with special mention to longstanding players Eric and Cordarro for their 10 combined years of distinguished service and their contributions to championship seasons.”

Law played 47 games over six seasons for the Stampeders and was a part of the team’s championship in 2018 while Rogers played 45 games over four seasons, was a two-time West all-star, a CFL all-star in 2015 and a part of the Stamps’ Grey Cup wins in 2014 and 2018. Daniel played eight games in 2019, his only season with the Red and White.
