Keon Raymond makes a living in coverage.

But if he ever decides to take a public relations job, he’s got a head start on writing bios.

Ask the Calgary Stampeders cover linebacker about Fred Stamps, and Raymond has a pretty good idea of what the veteran Edmonton Eskimos slotback is all about heading into Monday’s Labour Day Classic at McMahon Stadium (3 p.m., TSN/New Talk 770).

“I know that he is from New Orleans, La.,” Raymond said. “He went to Louisiana-Lafayette. Born in 1981. He’s the longest-tenured receiver that they have on the Edmonton team. And he’s leading the league right now in receiving and yards per catch right now — well … behind (B.C. Lions receiver) Manny Arceneaux — but he has the most 30-yard plus catches. I know quite a bit.”
