CALGARY -- The Calgary Stampeders announced Thursday that they have signed linebacker Deron Mayo to a contract extension.
 
Mayo, 25, is entering his third season with the Stampeders. After playing primarily on special teams as a rookie in 2012, Mayo became a starter at outside linebacker during Week 4 of the 2013 season and finished second on the team with 57 tackles. He added five sacks, one interception, two fumble recoveries and two pass knockdowns. Mayo continued to excel at special teams, recording nine tackles.
 
“Deron has been a force both on special teams and on defence during his two years with the team,” said GM John Hufnagel. “He did an exceptional job stepping in as a starter for us last season and I look forward to his continued improvement.”
 
In 35 career regular-season games for the Red and White, Mayo has 66 tackles, 24 special-teams tackles, six sacks, one interception and two fumble recoveries.
 
“I love playing in Calgary,” said Mayo. “It’s a great city and I really enjoy playing for Coach Huff. I also have great teammates and I’m looking forward to another great season and making a run for a championship.”

Fantastic move to extend Mayo, an emerging star LB!

I don't think Huff has received enough credit this offseason, for extending several important players who could have become free agents over the next couple years. So far 7 such players have been extended, which technically isn't even part of #CFLFA14:

- Bo Levi Mitchell
- Drew Tate
- Keon Raymond
- Deron Mayo
- Joe West
- Jeff Fuller
- Spencer Wilson

I agree with you 100%. Huff has done an amazing job keeping guys this off-season, he hasn't felt the need to go out and over spend in F/A. Calgary should be 1st in the West again and possibly for a while.
