The Toronto Argonauts released wide receiver Ken-Yon Rambo on Tuesday.

Rambo signed with the Argos in August 2012 and played in only five regular-season games but did not dress during the team's playoff run and eventual Grey Cup championship.

The 34-year-old recorded 10 catches for 124 yards during those five games with Toronto.

Prior to the Argos, he spent seven seasons with the Calgary Stampeders before the team released him in June 2012 after Rambo's Achilles tendinitis flared up during training camp.

He helped the Stamps win the 2008 Grey Cup and was eighth on the club's all-time list for receptions (406) and receiving yards (5,995).

Rambo arrived in Calgary in 2005 after a brief NFL tenure. He was a 2001 seventh-round draft pick of the Oakland Raiders but was a late cut.

He played two years with the Dallas Cowboys as a receiver and kick-returner before being released. Rambo later joined the New York Jets but never appeared in any games.
