Canadian fullback Declan Cross sticking with Argos through 2023

The Toronto Argonauts and fullback Declan Cross have reached an agreement on a new contract that will see him stay in double blue through the 2023 season.

“The only thing bigger than Declan’s hair is his heart,” said general manager Michael ‘Pinball’ Clemons.

“He is everything we want a Toronto Argonaut player to be. He is talented, a leader, a community builder, a fan favourite and one of the nicest human beings you will ever meet,” continued Clemons. “The only people happier about this signing than I am are our committed and loyal fans. It is a great day to be an Argo!”

Cross is coming off his fourth season with the Argos after being drafted by the club in the fourth round of the 2016 CFL Draft out of McMaster University.

The Oakville, Ontario native played all 18 regular-season games in each of his first three seasons before being limited to 12 games in 2019 due to injury.

“This is where I want to be, this is home,” said Cross.

“Toronto has provided so many people with tremendous opportunities on and off the field, myself included. I am grateful for the opportunity to represent this city and I appreciate the responsibility that comes with it.”

For his career, Cross has caught 77 passes for 682 yards and seven touchdowns in 66 games for the Argos.
