The Calgary Stampeders have re-signed national defensive lineman Ese Mrabure, the team announced Monday.

Mrabure played in 11 regular season games and recorded four tackles, two sacks and one fumble recovery.

"Ese is a versatile player and his return fortifies our depth on the defensive line," said Stampeders president and general manager John Hufnagel in a news release. "His first year in Calgary was hampered by injury and I look forward to seeing what he can do for us over a full and healthy season."

"My first year in Calgary was a bit of a bumpy ride because of injuries but it was still very enjoyable as we finished on top of the division, on top of the league and we came away with the Grey Cup," said Mrabure. "This year, I want to make more of an impact on a consistent basis and I've been working hard this off-season to make sure I'm healthy. I'm looking forward to getting going again as we try to go back-to-back with a Grey Cup win on our home field, which would be an incredible feat."

He was eligible to become a free agent on Tuesday.
