Ricky Ray is inching along in his process to make a final call on playing next season.
Rickey Ray getting closer on a decision on whether or not he plans to play next season. Talks between Ray & #Argos have been positive. No real panic to get a deal done immediately but that could change with #CFLFA just over 3 weeks away. @CFLonTSN @cfl

Ray enjoyed a resurgent 2017 campaign, his first under Argos head coach Marc Trestman. Ray entered the season with a reputation for being injury prone after he appeared in just 12 games over the previous two years due to an assortment of ailments. But that didn’t bother Trestman, who named Ray his starter the day he officially took the coaching helm.
Ray rewarded Trestman’s faith by registering his first 5,000-yard passing season since 2008 and the fourth of his career. That earned Ray the East Division’s Most Outstanding Player award, finishing second to eventual winner Mike Reilly of the Edmonton Eskimos.
Ray finished the Argos Grey Cup victory with 19-of-32 passing for 297 yards with a TD, which came on a record-breaking 100-yard touchdown pass to DeVier Posey.
The 38-year-old is contemplating coming back for another season or going out as a champion.
