The Calgary Stampeders bolstered their secondary Monday by signing veteran defensive back Tad Kornegay.

Kornegay is entering his eighth CFL season, having played previously with Hamilton, Saskatchewan and B.C. The former Fordham University star earned Grey Cup rings with the Roughriders in 2007 and last year with the Lions.

Kornegay appeared in 15 games last season with Saskatchewan and B.C., registering 39 tackles, two interceptions, two fumble recoveries and five pass knockdowns. Kornegay has dressed for 106 career games and compiled 134 tackles, 51 special-teams tackles, three sacks, seven interceptions, eight forced fumbles and seven fumble recoveries.

Calgary also added American-born defensive back Derrius Brooks to the practice roster.
