According to TSN, the Stampeders released wide receiver Ken-Yon Rambo along with non-import quarterback Brad Sinopoli, decided to leave defensive end Ameet Pall, their 2012 first round draft pick off the final roster, and traded defensive back Geoff Tisdale to the Hamilton Tiger-Cats for a third round draft choice in 2014.
The most significant transaction was General Manager John Hufnagel’s decision to release Rambo. The eight year veteran was eighth overall in franchise history in receptions (406) and receiving yards (5995). Last year, Rambo was third on the Stampeders with 695 receiving yards and tied for the team lead in touchdown receptions with five. Rambo also has had NFL experience with the Dallas Cowboys and New York Jets.
Sinopoli, a native of Peterborough, Ontario, was the third string quarterback for the Stampeders in 2011 and the holder for placekicks.
The Stampeders begin their 2012 regular season July 1 at home against Montreal.
Meanwhile, the Edmonton Eskimos acquired linebacker Clint Kent from the Winnipeg Blue Bombers. Kent was third on the team a year ago with 56 tackles.
