“We’re excited to get Nick back for the 2023 season,” Stampeders general manager and head coach Dave Dickenson said in a statement (h/t TSN). “He is committed to this city and is a player who provides leadership and versatility to our team.”
Statz played 11 regular-season games in 2022 and was among the Stampeders’ leaders with 12 special-teams tackles six defensive stops, one knockdown and his first career interception.
