Jonathan Rose re-signs with Redblacks

The Ottawa Redblacks have re-signed international defensive back Jonathan Rose to a one-year contract extension.

Rose was set to become a free agent on Tuesday.

Rose recorded 53 defensive tackles and two interceptions in 2017 and in 33 career games with Ottawa has 108 tackles, three interceptions and a sack.

“It’s important to retain good football players while providing continuity on the defensive side of the ball,” Ottawa general manager Marcel Desjardins said in a statement.
