The Calgary Stampeders have signed Canadian offensive lineman Zack Williams to a two-year contract extension through 2024, the club announced on Monday. He was scheduled to become a free agent next month.

“We’re excited to bring Zack back for two more years and for him to continue his development as a key piece of one of the top O-line groups in the CFL,” said head coach and general manager Dave Dickenson in a statement. “We want players like Zack on our team, and we look forward to watching him work in 2023.”

The Winnipeg native started all 18 regular season games at left guard this past season. He was part of an offensive line that allowed 17 sacks, the fewest in the league, and helped the Stampeders lead the CFL with 135.3 rushing yards per game.

“I’m just really thankful to be a part of a great organization,” said Williams. “I’m proud to represent the white horse and I’m excited to be back.”

Williams has dressed for 34 regular season games dating back to his rookie season in 2019 with 33 starts. Prior to turning pro, he played four seasons at the University of Manitoba and was named a Canada West all-star in 2018.
