CALGARY -- The Calgary Stampeders signed veteran import defensive end Anwar Stewart to their practice roster Wednesday.

Stewart started his CFL career with Calgary in 2000 and won a Grey Cup with the Stampeders in 2001. He signed with Montreal in 2002 and played 10 seasons with the Alouettes, winning three more Grey Cups and becoming the franchise's all-time sacks leader in 2009.

In 176 career regular-season games, Stewart has 284 tackles, including 29 tackles for loss, 30 special-teams tackles and 66 sacks. He also has 10 interceptions, 15 forced fumbles and seven fumble recoveries.

Stewart was an East Division all-star in 2003, 2004 and 2009, a CFL all-star in 2004 and 2009 and was the league's Most Outstanding Defensive Player in 2004.

The 8-6 Stampeders will play the 4-10 Blue Bombers in Winnipeg on Saturday.
