Bomber fans will get to see at least two more seasons of Chris Randle’s play-making in the Blue & Gold.
The 27-year-old agreed to terms with the Bombers on a two-year extension, keeping him in Winnipeg through the 2017 season.
Randle, who started at boundary cornerback for the Bombers in 2014, really came into form as a linebacker after a rough start, largely due to the position change. The Utah State alum recorded 37 tackles, a sack and an interception in nine games before suffering a season-ending injury in the Labour Day Classic. He’s one of the most underrated defensive backs in the league and a key piece to this defense.
Extending Randle’s contract a year before it was originally set to expire is great for GM Kyle Walters, who’s one of the best in the CFL at managing contracts and renewing them midseason or ahead of time, creating a much less stressful December and January.
