The Ottawa Redblacks have signed free agent receiver and two-time Grey Cup champion Darvin Adams.

“It feels great to be an Ottawa Redblack and I’m thankful for this opportunity,” said Adams in a press release. “I can’t wait to get to Ottawa and be a part of what this organization is putting together.”

A native of Canton, Miss., Adams arrived in the CFL for the 2013 season, signing with the Toronto Argonauts. He joined the Winnipeg Blue Bombers in 2015, and has racked up 4,928 receiving yards on 343 receptions along with 40 touchdowns through 91 career CFL games. He earned West Division all-star honours in 2017 and 2018.

The 32-year-old has also been a key contributor to the two-time defending Grey Cup champion Winnipeg Blue Bombers, appearing in four playoff games the last two seasons, recording 387 receiving yards, and the Grey Cup-winning touchdown in 2021.
