CALGARY - The Calgary Stampeders have settled on their quarterback of the future and given him the contract that goes with that title.

Drew Tate has inked a three-year extension with the Stamps, according to several reports Wednesday.

Where this leaves the future of Henry Burris is anybody’s guess right now.

Tate took over the starting QB job from Burris with three games remaining in the 2011 season and led the Stamps to three straight regular-season victories.

Burris did come in to relieve Tate during the West semifinal playoff loss in Edmonton, but it appeared at that time the team was leading in the direction of the 28-year-old.

When training camp opens in 2012, Tate will be 28 while Burris will be 37, and it will be Tate’s fourth season with the Stampeders.

The Stampeders will not make the contract official until after the world junior hockey championship is completed in Calgary.
