VANCOUVER — Defensive lineman Corey Mace has reportedly put pen to paper on a contract offer from the Calgary Stampeders.

While the club has not confirmed the deal, his agent, Paul Sheehy of ProStar Sports, wrote on his Twitter feed Friday, "Congrats to former Bills DT COREY MACE on signing w/CFL's Calgary Stampeders. Should dominate up there."

The Stamps acquired the rights to Mace in a trade with the Toronto Argonauts last weekend, sending linebacker Tristan Black the other way.

Mace has been property of four CFL teams but has yet to play in the three-down ranks, spending the bulk of the past two seasons on the Buffalo Bills' practice roster.

The Stamps face the B.C. Lions Friday night at Empire Field and never announce roster moves on game day.

On Thursday, head coach John Hufnagel told reporters the Mace signing was "real close" and that the team needed to "cross the Ts and dot the Is."

The 24-year-old should join the team for practice next week.
