The saga is over.

It started with Drew Tate being named starter to end the last season, continuing with Tate's 3 year contract extension, and ending with Henry Burris being traded to the Hamilton Tiger Cats Tuesday.

The Stampeders sent their all time leader in passing touchdowns, yardage and completions to Hamilton in return for Kevin Glenn, former University of Calgary Dino Offensive Lineman Mark Dewit and a conditional draft pick.

Burris returned to the Stampeders after trying his hand at the NFL, and spending a few seasons in Regina with the Roughriders. "Smiling Hank" was able to bring a Grey Cup to Calgary in 2008, being named playoff MVP. In the same year he was named the Western Division's nominee for Most Outstanding Player, but would lose to Montreal's Anthony Calvillo. Two years later, Burris would pick up his second nomination, and first MOP award.

Glenn comes to the Stampeders after splitting his career between Saskatchewan, the Winnipeg Blue Bombers, and Hamilton. His best season, statistically, came in 2010 where he collected 5,102 yards throwing, 33 passing touchdowns and had a quarterback rating of 97.6. His most successful season came back in 2007 with the Bombers where he led the team to the Grey Cup, but couldn't play in the big game due to a shoulder injury. He also picked up the Eastern Division nod for Most Outstanding Player that season.

Glenn says he's excited at the new challenge with his new team.

Head Coach and General Manager John Huffnagel, who has had an interesting off season, locking up some new core, and making this deal, goes through the process of how the deal came together.

Eyes now turn to Joffrey Reynolds, and his situation, as Running Back John Cornish replaced the former All Star, and current Stamps All Time rushing leader half way through last season. Keeping Reynolds would give the Stampeders a great one-two punch in the back field, but there are a few teams who would be looking for some help in their rushing game.

So, expect to see a new look offense next season when the Stampeders return to the gridiron for the 2012 CFL season.
