The Ottawa Redblacks have signed Canadian fullback Anthony Gosselin to a one-year contract extension, the team announced on Monday. He was scheduled to become a free agent next month.

The six-foot-one, 251-pounder recorded four receptions for 35 yards over 18 games this past season along with two special teams tackles.

“Hey RNation, I’m very excited to be back with the Redblacks,” said Gosselin in a statement. “I can’t wait to get back on the field in front of our fans and get to work against with Coach Dyce and the rest of the team.”

The 30-year-old has played five seasons with Ottawa since being selected in the second round of the 2018 CFL Draft out of the Université de Sherbrooke. Over 59 career games, he has made 13 receptions for 77 yards and 11 special teams tackles.
