Andrew Harris is back for another year with the Winnipeg Blue Bombers.

The veteran running back signed a one-year contract extension with his hometown team Friday. But the 33-year-old Winnipeg native was more than willing to commit to a longer deal.

“I would’ve signed a five-year (extension) to be honest with you,” Harris said with a chuckle during a videoconference with reporters. “I don’t know if you could see a 39-year-old running back.

“For me, I’m taking it year by year, I’ve always been that way. You’re always one hit away from this being over so you have to take it play by play, day by day and year by year. For me, it’s nothing different there.”

Financial details weren’t divulged but many CFL players have re-signed for less money with the league having not operated in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Harris said the extension was never about money.

“Everyone is feeling the effects on the financial side,” he said. “We all have to kind of adapt to that.

“For me, it was a seamless conversation, an easy conversation with Kyle (Bombers’ GM Kyle Walters). We both kind of understood each other and where we’re at. It wasn’t too difficult to get to where we are today.”

Harris will return for a fifth season with Winnipeg. He has led the CFL in rushing the past three years. He was named the game MVP and most valuable Canadian in Winnipeg’s Grey Cup win over Hamilton in 2019.

During the 2019 season, Harris passed Ben Cahoon to become the CFL’s career leader in yards from scrimmage by a Canadian. He also moved past Normie Kwong as the Canadian career rushing leader.

A five-time CFL all-star, Harris also was named the league’s most outstanding Canadian in 2017.

Roberson had 20 defensive tackles in 11 games for Toronto in 2018, his last action in the CFL.

Ciraco played collegiately at Calgary (2014-17).

LINEMAN RE-SIGNS WITH RIDERS
