CALGARY – The Calgary Stampeders have signed American defensive lineman Mike Rose to a two-year contract through the 2025 season.

The Stampeders went 6-12 last season before losing to the B.C. Lions in the West Division semifinal.

“Mike makes us a better team,” Stampeders general manager and head coach Dave Dickenson said in a release. “He’s consistently been one of our best players and one of the top defensive linemen in the league and we need him to continue that going into 2024.”

“I’m here to turn the tide because I didn’t like the way things went last season,” said Rose. “I want to help build a culture and win games.”
