Begelton is the third Stampeder to sign a long-term extension with the club, as quarterback Jake Maier was signed through the 2024 season and fellow wide receiver Malik Henry was signed through the 2025 season.
The 29-year-old from Beaumont, Tex., led the Red and White with 85 catches in the 2022 campaign, appearing in all 18 regular-season games. A product of Lamar University, Begelton amassed 957 yards and six touchdowns, earning him a CFLPA All-Star honours.
In the five seasons Begelton has spent in Calgary, which included him returning to the team after a stint with the Green Bay Packers in 2021, he has played in 53 regular-season games, recording 243 catches for 3,326 yards and 19 touchdowns. Begelton earned CFL All-Star honours in 2019 and in the same season, became just the fifth player in franchise history to record a 100-catch season, as he finished with 102 for 1,444 yards and 10 touchdowns.
