Bombers make Matt Nichols extension official

The Winnipeg Blue Bombers have announced the re-signing of quarterback Matt Nichols, as first reported by 3DownNation’s Justin Dunk on Monday.

The deal will keep him with the club through the 2019 season. Terms of the deal were not released but…

The seven-year CFL veteran took the starting reins in Week 6 of the 2016 season, guiding the team to seven straight wins.

The 29-year-old finished the season with career highs in touchdowns (18), yards (3,666) and completions (327).

He threw just nine interceptions en route to being named the team’s MVP.

The Eastern Washington product was acquired by Winnipeg in a trade in 2015.

“That was the beginning of a fresh start for me, and I was able to get a full opportunity last season,” Nichols said in a release. “I truly feel we are on the precipice of great things with this organization from top to bottom, and I’m appreciative that they feel I am the quarterback to lead them there.”
