Argos bring Waters back on the boat


The Argos have signed kicker/punter Swayze Waters to a one-year contract through the 2018 season.

“Swayze is a talented kicker with a proven track record in the CFL,” said Argos GM Jim Popp in a statement. “We’re happy to be able to bring him back to Toronto where he has a strong history.”

The 30-year-old returns to the Argos after playing 46 games with the club between 2012 and 2015. In four seasons with Toronto, Waters made 101-of-127 field goal attempts (79.5%) and was perfect on 98 one-point conversion attempts. Waters handled punting and kickoff duties for the team as well, punting 269 times for 12,607 yards (46.9 AVG) in his time with the team.

The 6-0, 185-pounder named the CFL’s Most Outstanding Special Teams Player in 2014 while also earning CFL and East Division All-Star honours. In 2012, Waters converted 7-of-8 postseason field goal attempts en route to becoming a 100th Grey Cup Champion with the Argos.

In 2017, Waters suited up in five games with the Edmonton Eskimos, converting 11-of-15 field goal attempts and 11-of-13 one-point conversions. In addition to the Argos and Eskimos, he has spent time with the BC Lions, Carolina Panthers, Pittsburgh Steelers, Oakland Raiders, and Detroit Lions.
