Calgary President and General Manager John Hufnagel announced that Nik Lewis has signed a one-day contract with the Calgary Stampeders so her can retire with the club.

Lewis, the Canadian Football League’s all-time leader in receptions with 1,051 catches, played 11 seasons with the Stampeders before spending the final 3 years of his career with the Montreal Alouettes.

Lewis finishes his career with 13,778 receiving yards and 71 touchdowns during his 14 seasons in the CFL.

“Nik was an important player for this organization for many years and it’s fitting that he retires as a member of the Stampeders,” said Hufnagel. “In particular, I recall Nik’s outstanding performance in the 2008 Grey Cup – 11 catches for 122 yards – to help us win a championship.

“His accomplishments on the field speak for themselves as Nik was certainly one of most popular players in Stampeders history with our fans. We celebrate his career on this day and wish him all the best for the future.”

Winnipeg Blue Bombers running back Andrew Harris has been suspended for two games following a failed drug test, according to an official league announcement.

Harris, 32, reportedly tested positive for Metandienone, which is a banned substance in the CFL.

“Throughout my four years playing here in Winnipeg, I have been drug tested more than any other player on our team to the point that it has become a running joke within our locker room,” Harris said. “I’m still in shock and disbelief at the news.

“The timeline makes it very clear — I was not using a banned substance for performance enhancing purposes, nor was I aware that I was taking any supplements with any banned substances in them. Based on the fact pattern, this is clearly a case of product contamination.”

“My road to becoming a starter in the CFL was extremely difficult, and I take a lot of pride in the honest blue collar work I’ve put in to reach this point in my career,” he said. “As unsettling and painful as this is to me and my family, I hope this can be a helpful reminder to all athletes about being extremely cautious and aware of what they are taking and putting into their bodies.”

“I can’t wait to rejoin my teammates and the city of Winnipeg in our quest to bring a Grey Cup to this wonderful city that I am fortunate enough to call home”.
