The Ottawa Redblacks have signed American defensive back Sherrod Baltimore to a one-year contract extension through the 2020 season.
A fan favorite on and off the field, Baltimore quickly became a popular figure on the Redblacks defence in the nation’s capital in 2017. During his three seasons in Ottawa, he has played 49 games, accumulating 91 tackles, two special teams stops, two interceptions and one forced fumble.
In 2019, Baltimore had his best game during Week 18 against Toronto, recording five tackles. He also recorded an interception in the 2018 Grey Cup game against Calgary. Before joining the Redblacks, Baltimore played four years with the University of Maine.
“It feels good to be back in Ottawa where I belong. Everyone in Canada knows I want to be here,” Baltimore said in a statement. “We have some unfinished business to take care of and I can’t wait to get back on the field in front of the best fans in the CFL and compete for a Grey Cup with my brothers.”
