Stamps sign LB Brad Cowan
CALGARY — The Calgary Stampeders have signed Canadian linebacker Brad Cowan.
The rookie from Wilfrid Laurier University played three games with the Ottawa REDBLACKS earlier this season before being released on Sept. 25.
Cowan (six-foot-three, 229 pounds) was selected by the REDBLACKS in the sixth round (47th overall) of the 2020 CFL draft after three seasons at Wilfrid Laurier. The 22-year-old Ottawa native played 23 regular-season games and two playoff contests over three seasons with the Golden Hawks.
Cowan played primarily on special teams as a rookie for Laurier’s Ontario University Athletics championship team in 2016 and was a starter in 2017 and 2019. He missed the entire 2018 campaign with a wrist injury.
For his university career, Cowan had 84 total tackles including 9.5 tackles for loss as well as 3.5 sacks, two pass breakups and one forced fumble.
