The University of Calgary alum had 178 career catches for 2,245 yards and 15 touchdowns for the Red and White.

“These are always very difficult decisions, especially when it’s someone who has been with the club for so long and has contributed so much on and off the field,” said Stampeders president and general manager John Hufnagel. “I thank Anthony for everything he has done for the football club and wish him all the best for the future whether he chooses to continue playing football or focus on his real-estate career.”
