The football club announced Wednesday that offensive tackle Jermarcus Hardrick — set to become a free agent next month — has agreed to a one-year contract extension.

The upcoming CFL season will mark Hardrick’s seventh in blue and gold. He played short stints with both the B.C. Lions and Saskatchewan Roughriders before starting for the Bombers in the 2016 season.
The six-foot-five, 319-pound player from Batesville, Miss., was named a CFL all-star in 2021, and also received an all-star nod from the CFL Players’ Association last season.
