According to the Calgary Stampeders website on Tuesday, the Calgary Stampeders will have a new kick returner for the 2014 Canadian Football League season.

First, the Stampeders traded kick returner Larry Taylor to the Montreal Alouettes with a fifth round pick (43rd overall) in the 2014 Canadian Football League draft for a fifth round pick (40th overall) in the 2014 Canadian Football League draft.

Then the Stampeders signed kick returner Jock Sanders from the Saskatchewan Roughriders.

Sanders might have more of an upside than Taylor because at 25 years of age is three years younger.

Last season, Taylor had 1970 total return yards to lead the Canadian Football League, while Sanders had 1292 total return yards. However it was Sanders and not Taylor that won a Grey Cup championship in 2013.

Sanders spent four seasons at the University of West Virginia before being on the practice roster with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and British Columbia Lions. He has spent the last two seasons with the Roughriders.
