Ken-Yon started and played in the final 14 regular season games and the West Final. He recorded 72 receptions for 1,172 yards and eight touchdowns and topped 100 yards. He passed the 5,000-yard mark in receiving. Ken-Yon was part of the trio to surpass the 1,000 yards in the same season.


In an injury-shortened season, Rambo played three games, all as a starter. He twice led the team in receptions in those three games as he made eight catches at Winnipeg on July 10 and six against Toronto on July 17.


Following a breakout year in 2007, Rambo established a pair of career bests by grabbing 100 receptions for a league-leading 1,473 yards. Those both represented the highest totals for a Stamp since 1995. Rambo smashed his previous season-high mark for 100-yard games by recording five. Then on Oct. 3 against Saskatchewan, he recorded 12 catches, the most by a Stampeder since Allen Pitts had 12 on Sept. 22, 2000. Rambo recorded the longest reception of his career with an 81-yard score against Saskatchewan on Oct. 13. He had two or more catches in all 18 regular-season games, the West Final and the Grey Cup. He had touchdown receptions in back-to-back games—in Edmonton on Sept. 5 and against Montreal on Sept. 12. Rambo was named a CFL, West Division and CFLPA all-star for the first time in his career.


Rambo had a career year, setting personal bests with 62 receptions, 983 receiving yards and 10 touchdowns. His 10 touchdowns tied for the CFL lead with teammate Jeremaine Copeland and Saskatchewan’s D.J. Flick. He had at least one reception in each of his 17 regular-season games. He recorded a season-long 57-yard reception against Hamilton in the season opener and a career-high six receptions for 110 yards at Montreal on Aug. 9. He scored multiple touchdowns in games against Edmonton on Labour Day and Hamilton on Sept. 21. Rambo added five receptions for 154 yards and scored twice to lead all receivers in the West Semi-Final in Saskatchewan.
