CALGARY — Calgary Stampeders general manager John Hufnagel says he’s optimistic he can re-sign quarterback Bo Levi Mitchell.
“We’re talking. We’re optimistic we’ll get something done. We’re plugging away.”

With CFL free agency starting Tuesday, Hufnagel says he’s conducting business with the belief Mitchell will be a Stampeder again.
Mitchell, 28, led the Stampeders to a Grey Cup victory in 2018 and earned the league’s most outstanding player award for the second time in his career.
He worked out with several NFL teams in the off-season.
Hufnagel says he’s less optimistic about re-signing defensive tackle Micah Johnson.
