The Calgary Stampeders have told Marc Boerigter if and when he wants to come back to Canada, the team will be interested in talking.

The team's former star receiver was released by the Indianapolis Colts over the weekend, making him a free agent.

Stamps general manager Jim Barker said the CFL club would like to bring Boerigter back on a long-term contract but doesn't want to break the bank for only a one-year deal.

"The (Colts) told him they may bring him back," Barker said. "We have to decide if we want to disrupt our entire flow. If you bring him in, you have to cut somebody with a similar salary and we don't want to do that."

Barker believes Boerigter will wait to gauge interest from other NFL teams. There also is the possibility Boerigter could be placed on the Colts' practice roster, which is where former Calgary Dinos lineman Dan Federkeil is expected to land after getting his release as well.

The Colts are also keeping former Stamps kick return specialist Terrence Wilkins.

Former Stamps offensive lineman Steven Morley was released by the New York Jets but Barker expects the first-round CFL draft choice (2003) to catch on with another team south of the border.
