Shamawd Chambers (born March 10, 1989) is a Canadian football wide receiver for the Edmonton Eskimos of the Canadian Football League (CFL). After the 2011 CIS season, he was ranked as the third best player in the Canadian Football League’s Amateur Scouting Bureau final rankings for players eligible in the 2012 CFL Draft and second by players in Canadian Interuniversity Sport. At the 2012 CFL Evaluation Camp, Chambers ran the fastest 40-yard dash, clocking in at 4.42. He was selected sixth overall by the Edmonton Eskimos in the 2012 CFL Draft.
After going undrafted in the 2012 NFL Draft, Chambers received an invitation to the Philadelphia Eagles free-agent tryouts. The tryout took place over the May 12, 2012 weekend and lasted for 3 days. Chambers did not impress the Eagles personnel enough to receive an invite to the Eagles mini-camp.
Shamawd Chambers was selected 6th overall in the 2012 CFL Draft by the Edmonton Eskimos of Canadian Football League. He signed on June 3, 2012. Chambers finished the 2012 CFL season with 390 yards and 2 touchdowns. Despite the low season totals had at least one reception in 14 of the 16 games that he dressed in. His efforts also earned him the Esks’ Most Outstanding Rookie award. After a slow start to the 2013 CFL season Chambers finished with numbers that were only slightly improved over his rookie season. He amassed 465 receiving yards on 42 catches, 4 of which were touchdowns. Chambers played in the first 10 games of the 2014 CFL season before injuring his knee, which would cause him to miss the remainder of the season. He finished the season with 30 receptions for 366 yards and a single touchdown reception. In 2015, he won the Dick Suderman Trophy for the Grey Cup's Most Valuable Canadian, after making 2 receptions in a 26–20 Eskimos win.
Chambers signed as a free agent with Saskatchewan on February 9, 2016. Chambers played in 14 games for the Riders in 2016, catching 25 passes for 269 yards with 1 touchdown. On January 27, 2017, about two weeks before becoming a free agent, Chambers was released by the Riders along with three of his teammates.
