Stamps Sign Ese Mrabure
The Calgary Stampeders have signed national defensive lineman Ese Mrabure.
The 25-year-old from North York, Ont., has played a total of 38 CFL games - including 16 starts - over three CFL seasons with the BC Lions and Saskatchewan Roughriders. With Saskatchewan in 2017, he played 16 games and recorded 17 tackles, two sacks, nine QB pressures and one fumble recovery.
"In Ese, we get a versatile defensive lineman with a high ceiling," said Stampeders president and general manager John Hufnagel. "His addition will make for a very competitive training camp."
An alumnus of Wilfrid Laurier University, Mrabure was selected fifth overall by BC in the 2015 draft. He played one season for the Lions before signing with Saskatchewan in 2016. He has 39 career defensive tackles as well as two special-teams tackles, three sacks and one fumble recovery.
"When the opportunity arose to come to Calgary, the stars lined up and showed me this was the place for me," said Mrabure. "I also had a really good conversation with Coach Dave Dickenson and I'm looking forward to playing with the Stampeders."
