According to the Calgary Stampeders website on Tuesday, the Calgary Stampeders have signed a former National Football League player to help on their defense.

The Stampeders have signed defensive lineman Brandon Johnson, who played seven seasons in the NFL from 2006-2012 with the Arizona Cardinals, Cincinnati Bengals and Pittsburgh Steelers.

During that time he had 224 tackles, 3.5 sacks, three interceptions and a forced fumble according to the National Football League website.

A native of Birmingham, Alabama, Johnson played for the University of Louisville Cardinals before being drafted by the Arizona Cardinals in the fifth round of the 2006 National Football League draft.

Brandon Johnson and his wife Chakeia are also very active in mentoring troubled teenagers and children, through their foundation, the Johnson Family Foundation that was formed in 2010.

Johnson joins a Stampeders defense that gave up the second fewest points in the Canadian Football League last season. Their 413 points was second only to the Saskatchewan Roughriders' 398 points.
