REDBLACKS Catch Receiver At A Price

The Ottawa REDBLACKS of the Canadian Football League are hoping success comes with a Price after acquiring international wide receiver Maurice Price in a trade with the Calgary Stampeders.

In exchange, the Stampeders receive international linebacker Jasper Simmons and international receiver Dan Buckner.

“We see this move as a major step forward in the improvement of our football club,” said Marcel Desjardins, general manager of the REDBLACKS. “We appreciate everything that Jasper and Dan contributed to our team.”

Price, a 29-year-old native of Orlando, is a three-year veteran of the Stampeders. Last year, the 6-foot-1, 205-pounder out of Charleston Southern had 34 catches for 544 yards and two touchdowns, including a 102-yard major in the season opener for the eventual Grey Cup champs against the Alouettes at McMahon Stadium.

“Mo is an explosive player who has exceptional speed and outstanding playmaking abilities,” said REDBLACKS head coach Rick Campbell. “He’s a CFL veteran who knows the league, knows the game and has a big up-side. He has the ability to come in here and make big contributions right away.”
