The Winnipeg Blue Bombers have agreed to terms on a new one-year contract with all-star offensive tackle Stanley Bryant.

The six-foot-five, 306-pound blocker was named to the CFL all-star team for a sixth time in 2021 at left tackle. He was also named the CFL’s Most Outstanding Offensive Lineman and in so doing became the first player in league history to win the award three times. He had previously been honoured in 2017 and 2018 was the runner-up for the award in 2019.

Bryant has been a mainstay on the left side of Winnipeg’s offensive line since first signing with the club as a free agent in 2015. He was part of an offence that led the CFL in scoring in 2021 and anchored a unit that surrendered the fewest quarterback sacks while helping three different running backs compile the second-best rushing totals in the league this season.

As durable as he is dominant, Bryant had dressed for 103 consecutive games for the Bombers since his arrival in 2015 before that streak was snapped as he was rested for a game against the Montreal Alouettes in November.

He has now appeared in 169 regular season games with the Bombers and Calgary Stampeders and has three Grey Cup championships to his name: 2014 with Calgary and 2019 and 2021 with Winnipeg.
