The Grey Cup champion Calgary Stampeders have re-signed five of their Canadians.

Punter Rob Maver, kicker Rene Paredes, long-snapper Pierre-Luc Caron and fullbacks Ante Milanovic-Litre and Charlie Power all inked deals with the Stamps on Thursday.

The five players, who played special teams for the Stampeders this season, have a combined 28 years of CFL experience.

The Toronto Argonauts also extended two Canadian players, locking up defensive linemen Hassan Barry and John Biewald through 2020. Both players joined the Argos this year.

Meanwhile, the B.C. Lions signed four Americans — wide receivers Larry Cobb and Travion Tucker, defensive end Timmy Hamilton and linebacker Clemente Casseus.
