Drew Willy and the Argonauts have agreed to a new contract, as first reported by Kirk Penton.
The 30-year-old quarterback was scheduled to receive a $100,000 off-season bonus on Jan. 15, but the pivot and team came together on a fresh pact in advance of that date.
Willy received a $70,000 signing bonus and an extra year on the deal, putting him under contract with Toronto through the 2018 season. If he starts every game in 2017, the six-foot-four, 220-pound signal caller will earn just over $305,000 and more than $415,000 should the same scenario play out in 2018.
After being acquired by the Argos in September, Willy played four games in double blue completing 77 of 113 passes for 681 yards with three touchdowns and one interception.
