Aldarius Johnson Getting An Extended Look in Camp

The kids are getting a good, long look.

With the injury bug biting the Calgary Stampeders receiving core hard – yes, again! – a couple of newcomers are getting an extended audition at this year’s training camp.

Canadian slotback Jabari Arthur returned to action Tuesday morning.

But import receivers Nik Lewis, Marquay McDaniel, Jeff Fuller and Joe West continued to watch from the sidelines.

Which gives the likes of Robert Holland and Aldarius Johnson a bigger opportunity.

“We’re getting more of a look than we would normally get from the young guys,” Stamps GM/head coach John Hufnagel said.


“They’re working hard.

“Sure, there’s a lot thrown at them and they’re making some mistakes, but not the same amount we’ve had from young guys in the past.”

Johnson is used to playing on the big stage, having starred with the Miami Hurricanes along with Edmonton Eskimos quarterback Jacory Harris.

The 6-foot-3, 213-pounder is hoping to make the most of his extra reps.

“I’m just coming out every day and playing football,” the 24-year-old said. “I love to compete. I love the competition.”

Eighteen UM seniors auditioned, plus former Canes players Aldarius Johnson, Davon Johnson, Vaughn Telemaque and Dyron Dye (who was tossed off the UM team last season because of his connection to the NCAA investigation, landed at Bethune Cookman and then received permission to work out Thursday).
Ray-Ray Armstrong, now with the St. Louis Rams, attended Thursday to offer emotional support for Dye, his former teammate at UM and Sanford Seminole High.

Richard Gordon, Kenny Phillips, Antrel Rolle and Micanor Regis were among other former Canes observing.
