2 former Eagles make CFL rosters

A pair of former Southern Miss football stars will be competing north of the border this season.

Canadian Football League teams made their final cuts over the weekend with the season set to start on Thursday.

Former Southern Miss kick returner/running back Tracy Lampley earned a spot on the practice roster with the Edmonton Eskimos.

Lampley was brought to Edmonton with hopes that he can improve the Eskimos' stagnant kick return game.

Former USM defensive end Cordarro Law has a good shot at receiving significant playing time this year for the Calgary Stampeders.

Law, who signed as a free agent with Seattle Seahawks following the 2011 season, is hoping to follow the path of other defensive linemen who have played in the CFL before getting scooped up by an NFL team. Tom Johnson, a former USM player now with the Saints, and Miami Dolphins star Cameron Wake are current examples.

Former USM star linebacker Rod Davis was cut by the Stampeders over the weekend. Davis has been playing pro football since he was drafted by the Minnesota Vikings in 2004. He has also played for the Carolina Panthers, Philadelphia Soul in the Arena League and two teams in the CFL (Edmonton and Montreal).

CFL games will be broadcast on NBC Sports Network and ESPN2 this season.
