The Ottawa Redblacks are staying busy, inking Canadian fullback Marco Dubois to a two-year contract extension.

The 27-year-old was drafted in the second round, 13th overall, in the 2018 CFL Draft. The Lasalle, Quebec native played in all 18 games last season, tying a career-high in catches with four and setting a career-high in receiving yards with 70, including a career-long 54-yard reception in the season opener at Winnipeg.

The Université Laval product also contributed on special teams, making nine tackles last season.

For his career, the six-foot-five, 227-pounder has played in 66 of a possible 68 games, caught 13 passes for 144 yards and recorded 19 special teams tackles and one defensive tackle.

“Coming back to Ottawa was an easy choice for me; the city, the fans and the whole organization has been great to me since I got drafted in 2018,” said Dubois.

“It is an honour to play for the Redblacks and to continue playing for Bob Dyce. We will give everything we’ve got to bring back the winning culture that R-Nation deserves. Can’t wait to be back home on Bank Street.”

Dubois’ signing comes on the same day the team inked Canadian kicker Lewis Ward to a two-year extension and not long after the team inked punter Richie Leone and special team’s ace Ty Cranston to new deals.

*Editor’s note: an earlier version of this article indicated that Dubois signed a one-year contract, which was mistakenly announced by the team.*
