Paredes attended training camp with the Winnipeg Blue Bombers in 2010 and 2011 and after being released, was signed by the Stampeders on July 4, 2011. He played CIS Football with the Concordia Stingers.
On July 26, 2013, in a game versus the Winnipeg Blue Bombers, Paredes successfully converted five field goal attempts on his way to breaking the all-time Canadian Football League record for most consecutive field goal conversions previously held by Paul McCallum.
