Ottawa Redblacks re-sign Canadian receiver Nate Behar

The Ottawa Redblacks have re-signed Canadian receiver Nate Behar.

After a 2018 season with 27 receptions for 257 yards and a touchdown for the Edmonton Elks, who drafted him fifth overall in 2017, Behar signed with Ottawa in 2019. In his only season with the Redblacks, the five-foot-11, 204-pound former Carleton University Ravens star recorded 16 receptions for 169 yards.

“Since 2014 there’s only been one football city for me. I can’t wait to be back in black and red in front of the fans at TD Place,” Behar said in a statement. “This city deserves our best and I promise to bring my best.”

The 26-year-old Behar had an incredible university career that saw him catch passes for 2,577 yards and 21 touchdowns in 30 games for the Ravens, twice earning All-Canadian honours.
