The Calgary Stampeders have come to terms with Joe West, inking the import receiver to a contract extension on Friday.

Terms of the agreement were not disclosed.

"I'm so thankful to be able to represent a great city and to have the best fans behind us," said West. "I'd like to thank the team and the ownership for this opportunity. Working hard to achieve success starts with self-discipline and drive within oneself."

 West made six regular-season starts for the Stamps in 2013 and recorded 19 catches for 277 yards and three touchdowns. He had three receptions for 101 yards and one touchdown in the Western Final against Saskatchewan. The 29-year-old Melbourne, Fla., native missed a total of 12 games because of a shoulder injury.
 
The University of Texas-El Paso alum joined the Stamps in 2012 and appeared in seven games, accumulating 24 catches for 353 yards and two touchdowns.
 
"Joe has shown the potential to be a very good CFL receiver in his relatively limited game action over the past two seasons," said Hufnagel. "I believe he has the potential to be an important part of our receiving corps and I look forward to him having a healthy 2014 season."
 
Prior to joining the Stamps, West spent time on the practice rosters of the National Football League's Dallas Cowboys, New Orleans Saints and St. Louis Rams.

The team also re-signed DB Jamar Wall, who co-lead the team in interceptions with four despite playing only 12 regular season games.
