The Toronto Argonauts have restructured the contracts of three key players.

Receiver DaVaris Daniels, offensive tackle Jamal Campbell, and offensive guard Philip Blake have all signed new deals to remain with the team. Each player had a roster bonus due for February 1.

Daniels signed a two-year contract with Toronto in February 2020 following four seasons with the Calgary Stampeders. He has come close to recording several 1,000-yard receiving seasons despite fighting through injuries in each of his four seasons with Calgary.

Campbell became the Argos’ starting right tackle in 2019 after spending three seasons in a developmental role. The six-foot-seven, 300-pound blocker has become a ratio-breaker along the offensive line following a successful career at York University.

Blake is former NFL draft pick who signed with Toronto ahead of the 2020 season. He has yet to dress for his hometown team, but the 35-year-old has been a solid starter during stints with Montreal and Saskatchewan.

The Argos also signed Canadian offensive lineman Cody Speller, who was acquired in a trade with the Winnipeg Blue Bombers last week. The McMaster product can start at guard or centre and is viewed as an up-and-coming blocker in CFL circles.

Toronto also officially announced the release of quarterback Matt Nichols, linebacker Bo Lokombo, and defensive tackle Fabion Foote.

3DownNation insider John Hodge has reported that Lokombo has signed a two-year contract with the B.C. Lions.
