Amos Released to Pursue NFL Opportunity
The Calgary Stampeders have released American defensive back DaShaun Amos in order to allow him to pursue an opportunity in the National Football League. The 25-year-old Midlothian, Va., product was slated to become a free agent next month.
In 2019, his first full season in the CFL, Amos earned West Division all-star recognition. The East Carolina alum made 17 starts at halfback and finished tied for third in the CFL with five interceptions. He returned one of the interceptions for a touchdown during the Stamps' Labour Day rematch victory over the Edmonton Eskimos. Amos added 42 defensive tackles, one special-teams tackle and eight knockdowns.
In 19 career regular-season games over two seasons with Calgary, Amos had 52 defensive tackles and five interceptions.
