The Ottawa Redblacks have agreed to terms with Canadian offensive lineman Nolan MacMillan on a contract extension, per sources.
The 26-year-old will make around $190,000 as part of the deal.
McMillan has made 42 starts in three seasons with Ottawa after being selected ninth overall in the 2013 CFL Draft. He was the first player ever to be drafted by the Redblacks franchise.
McMillan was set to become a free agent at noon on Tuesday and he would’ve been one of the top Canuck offensive linemen available. With Ottawa general manager Marcel Desjardins having invested in MacMillan and American receiver Greg Ellingson last week, it remains to be seen if he has cap space left for reigning CFL East Division MOP Ernest Jackson and two-time all-star defensive back Abdul Kanneh.
