Drew Tate is a 5-year Canadian Football League veteran quarterback who is going to be an 8-year CFL vet.

Tate got a 3-year extension Wednesday with the Calgary Stampeders. He appears to be that team's new No. 1 quarterback after starting the Stampeders' final three regular-season games and their West Division semifinal loss against the Edmonton Eskimoes last year. He hadn't started a pro game before the 2011 season.

Tate finished his Iowa Hawkeye career in the 2006 Alamo Bowl. He was a three-year starter for the Hawkeyes.
