Bombers comes to terms on extension for all-star DB Chris Randle

The Bombers have agreed to terms with defensive back Chris Randle on a two-year contract.

Randle enters his fifth season with Winnipeg in 2018, coming off an all-star season in which he was also named the team’s most outstanding defensive player. He finished the 2017 campaign with 60 defensive tackles, four special teams tackles, one sack, five interceptions, and two defensive touchdowns.

“Simply put, Chris Randle was one of those players that we knew we needed to work something out with prior to February 13,” said general manager Kyle Walters in a statement. “He is a leader in everything he does. He’s coming off the best season of his career and we’re looking forward to more of that in 2018. He’s a special player and an invaluable asset to our locker room, and I’m glad we were able to retain him.”

Randle has now played in 89 career regular season CFL games over six seasons, including 58 with Winnipeg. He has amassed 233 defensive tackles, 56 special teams tackles, three sacks, 15 interceptions, four forced fumbles and four defensive touchdowns.
