Larry Taylor is on the move and it’s back to familiar turf.
The Calgary Stampeders traded the import kick returner and a 2014 fourth-round pick (43rd overall) to move up three places in the draft, acquiring the 40th overall pick from the Montreal Alouettes.
There are also conditional 2015 draft picks in play in the deal for Taylor, who broke into the league in 2008 with the Alouettes.
“We appreciate everything that Larry has done for us over the past three seasons and wish him the best in Montreal,” said Stampeders GM/head coach John Hufnagel in a statement.
In 44 games with the Stamps over three campaigns, Taylor logged 3,055 kickoff-return yards, 1,637 punt-return yards and 659 missed-field goal return yards.
Taylor also had 39 catches for 321 yards and four majors since joining the team in 2011.
