“It’s just a particular play,” Jackson says. “From a mental standpoint, everything (last year) was different. Different scheme. Different this. And playing things differently. It was a learning curve for me. In the back end of the season, that’s when I kind of picked it up and started getting back to myself … I won’t allow myself (to have a learning curve).”

With Jackson facing his third different defense in his fourth season, cornerbacks coach Daronte Jones says that approach to another new scheme shows Jackson’s growth adjusting to the invisible intangibles of the game.

“It’s not like he’s a fourth-year player that has been in same system that you can see flourishing,” Jones says. “He’s been going at it. He’s been serious about his work. There’s a lot of learning … (Realizing it) that’s where maturity comes from. He’s definitely grown in that way.”

Even stranger is that it’s been around since 1971

That means Ambles is likely going to be one of three American receivers in the Stamps’ starting lineup in Week 1 alongside Eric Rogers and Reggie Begelton.

The Calgary coaching staff has been moving the 27-year-old around and having him play different positions in the early days of training camp, so it’s not entirely clear where he’ll be lining up when the regular season gets underway.

One thing that is obvious, though, is that Ambles has a big role to play.

“I definitely think (last year) helped me a lot,” Ambles said. “Talking to coach, they’ve got big plans for me this year, so I’m excited to see how it goes.

“I might be playing one position in training camp and pre-season, and then it depends on how the roster ends up at the end of training camp. I’ll be ready to play wherever.”

“The way Markeith has approached this, his mindset, really set him up to have a good camp,” says Costanza. “And he’s done a nice job. Really has. He’s been in one spot since Day One. He’s figuring out the details, so now he can just get out there, play fast and make plays for us.”

One final pre-season test remains, at B.C. on Friday, before the Stamps begin defence of their title.

And Ambles is aiming to play a big part.

“I’ve always tried to look at the playbook as a whole because anybody can be hurt at any time and you’ve got to be ready to step in and help out where you’re needed,”he says. “I’m always ready to do that.

4. Greg Ward started his career as a rookie free agent with the Eagles in 2017 and he spent the majority of the season on the practice squad. He was re-signed in April after gaining valuable experience in the AAF. The 5-11, 190-pound Ward was utilized often in the slot on Tuesday with the first-team offense. A former quarterback at the University of Houston, the Eagles tried to get him the ball on the run to take a shot down the field during a team drill, but the defense kept him from getting the pass away.
