The Winnipeg Blue Bombers have secured another player off the list of soon-to-be free agents.
International cornerback Chris Randle has signed a two year contract with the team. He has been with the Bombers for four seasons.
Last year he was named the team’s most outstanding defensive player and had a career season by playing in all 18 games with 60 defensive tackles, four more on special teams, five interceptions, two touchdowns, and a quarterback sack.
“Simply put, Chris Randle was one of those players that we knew we needed to work something out with prior to February 13,” General Manager Kyle Walters said in a news release. “He is a leader in everything he does. He’s coming off the best season of his career and we’re looking forward to more of that in 2018. He’s a special player and an invaluable asset to our locker room, and I’m glad we were able to retain him.”
Randle has suited up for 58 games with the Bombers and has been in the CFL for six seasons, previously playing with the Calgary Stampeders.
