Calgary Stampeders sign American quarterback Jake Maier

CALGARY — The Calgary Stampeders have signed American quarterback Jake Maier.

The Stampeders are looking for a new backup quarterback behind starter Bo Levi Mitchell.

Nick Arbuckle signed with the Ottawa Redblacks in the off-season. Calgary retained last season’s third stringer Montell Cozart.

Maier, a 23-year-old from Fullerton, Calif., threw for 11,163 yards and 88 touchdowns and was intercepted 33 times over three seasons at University of California-Davis.

The six-foot, 200-pound pivot was the Big Sky Conference’s newcomer of the year in 2017 and the conference’s offensive player of year in 2018.
