Former CFL star receiver Reggie Begelton signs deal with Green Bay Packers

GREEN BAY, Wis. — Reggie Begelton is a Green Bay Packer.

The former Calgary Stampeders star receiver signed a reserve/future deal with Green Bay on Monday. The CFL club released Begelton last week to allow him to pursue opportunities south of the border.

The six-foot-two, 205-pound Begelton spent three seasons with Calgary, achieving career highs last year in catches (102), receiving yards (1,444) and touchdowns (10). Begelton was a CFL all-star in 2019 and the Stampeders’ nominee for the league’s outstanding player award.

Begelton amassed 149 catches for 2,236 yards and 12 TDs during his tenure in Calgary.
