Bombers close to extending American offensive lineman

Winnipeg is close to agreeing to terms with offensive lineman Manase Foketi on a two-year contract extension, per sources.

The West Texas A&M product was a healthy scratch for all eighteen regular season games in 2017 after appearing in three contests as a rookie.

Winnipeg started three internationals along the offensive line this past season and recently re-signed all-star right tackle Jermarcus Hardrick to a one-year contract worth approximately $100,000.

This leaves reigning Most Outstanding Offensive Lineman Stanley Bryant (left tackle) and 2016 all-star Travis Bond (left guard) without deals for 2018.
