CALGARY - Since Greg Carr was inked to the Calgary Stampeders practice roster after the Saskatchewan Roughriders cut him earlier this month, the 6-foot-6, 214-lb. receiver has watched his new teammates drop like flies on a weekly basis.

“It’s crazy, but at the same time, you know that’s what this game can sometimes be about — the next man stepping up when a guy goes down,” Carr said following Tuesday’s practice at McMahon Stadium.

Now, it seems Carr could be the next man up.

And it just happens to coincide with a trip to the ‘Peg, where the former Florida State star began his CFL foray back in 2010.

The stadium may be new, but everything else about Winnipeg is familiar to Carr.

“I mean … ya, I enjoyed my time there, and I’ve got nothing but love for Winnipeg,” said the fourth-year CFL vet, when asked if it would be special to make his Stamps debut in the city he posted his best season of 46 catches for 648 yards and four touchdowns.
