Cody Pickett Signed By Calgary Stampeders
Former Husky quarterback Cody Pickett, who threw for more yards than any QB in UW history (by a long shot), has signed a contract with the Calgary Stampeders of the Canadian Football League.
Picket has played for both Toronto and Montreal in the CFL, having spent time in the NFL with San Francisco and Houston.
Here's Pickett's bio from the Stamps' official website.
There are also a couple of interesting newspaper stories in the Canadian press. Here's one from the Toronto Sun, which notes that Pickett spent a lot of time in Calgary as a kid, thanks to his (and his father's) well-known rodeo background. This Montreal Gazette story notes his rodeo history as well, but focuses on the notion that he should be able to step in quickly. Finally, here's the take from the Calgary Herald on the team's QB situation.
Calgary hosts Saskatchewan this Sunday in the second exhibition game of the season and then opens regular-season play July 1 vs. Toronto.
