WORTH READING: STAMPS DAY 6 REPORT
International LB Brandon Harper (Widener) was added to the roster
Defensive lineman Shomari Williams, who enters his sixth season in the CFL and his first with the Stamps:
"Ever since I came into the league, Calgary has always been one of the top organizations in the CFL. So being here is really special and I think if we can just keep the ball rolling from what they had last year - and I can help contribute to that - then we'll win another Grey Cup."
National REC Lemar Durant did not practise in the morning but returned for the afternoon session
National OL Karl Lavoie did not take part in either of Friday's practice
International DL DeQuin Evans did not practise
