Stampeders sign QBs Tate, Mitchell to extensions
Calgary, AB (SportsNetwork.com) - The Calgary Stampeders have signed quarterbacks Drew Tate and Bo Levi Mitchell to contract extensions.
Terms of the deals were not disclosed.
"Drew and Bo are both very talented quarterbacks who have enjoyed great success as members of the Stampeders," said Stampeders coach and general manager John Hufnagel. "They work extremely well together and their decision to sign extensions with the Stampeders gives us great long-term stability at what is obviously a key position."
Tate has been with the Stampeders since 2009, but has battled injuries the past two seasons. He has started just eight regular-season games and two playoff contests since late in the 2011 campaign.
The 29-year-old Iowa product has completed 68 percent of his passes for 3,270 yards with 24 touchdowns and just nine interceptions during his Stamps career.
Mitchell was 3-0 as a starter in 2013, completing 94-of-135 passes for 1,156 yards with 10 touchdowns and three interceptions.
