The Winnipeg Blue Bombers have re-signed import WR Terrence Edwards to a two-year contract extension.
Edwards, who turns 33 tomorrow, led the Bombers receiving core last season with 8 touchdowns, and 1,124 yards on 66 receptions.
Edwards went undrafted in the 2003 NFL draft, and was signed by the Atlanta Falcons. Despite suffering a groin injury in the last game of preseason, Edwards made the team and was active for six. His has only one NFL reception.
Edwards signed with the Toronto Argonauts in 2005, but was released. He was then picked up by the Montreal Alouettes the same year, and in 2006 caught 33 passes for 393 yards.
Since joining the Winnipeg Blue Bombers in 2007, Edwards has had four 1-000 yard receiving seasons and is currently 4th on the Bombers all-time receiving yards list with 5, 602, between Joe Poplawski (3rd) and Jeff Boyd(5th).
“Terrence has been one of our most consistent receivers since he came to Winnipeg and has great leadership qualities and work ethic that is looked up to by the rest of his teammates,” GM Joe Mack said in a statement.
“He will continue to be a key component of our offence and we look forward to having him continue to mentor our young group of receivers.”
