The Winnipeg Blue Bombers have inked CFL all-star offensive lineman Patrick Neufeld to a one-year contract extension.

Neufeld is entering his 12th CFL season and ninth with the Bombers. He has been named a league All-Star at right guard for the past two seasons but is known for his versatility, occasionally pinch-hitting at tackle.

The 33-year-old appeared in 17 regular season games this year, as well as starting both the West Final and Grey Cup. Winnipeg finished second in the CFL in points scored, sacks surrendered, and rushing yards. They also ranked first in touchdowns, as running back Brady Oliveira ran for 1,000 yards for the first time in his career.

Originally selected by the Saskatchewan Roughriders in the fifth round of the 2010 CFL Draft, Neufeld was traded to the Bombers mid-way through the 2013 season. He has played in 99 regular season games with the club, winning two Grey Cups.
