Stamps stock up at LS, bring back Chevrier, sign Ben Whiting

CALGARY — The Calgary Stampeders have signed long snapper Randy Chevrier and linebacker/long snapper Ben Whiting. Both players have been placed on the suspended list while they complete the mandatory quarantine period.

what!? Chevrier? This must be a joke

I assume by the way Whiting is described as a LB/LS that Chevrier is an insurance policy.

Whiting plays on defence but ends up getting injured means they still have a specialist snapper on the roster.

Plus I would be 99% certain that long snappers make the CFL minimum? Or is this another position where demand for Canadian players helps inflate their wage slightly?
