The Winnipeg Blue Bombers have re-signed defensive back Maurice Leggett to a one-year contract.
The pending free agent started 13 games for Winnipeg in 2017, recording 50 defensive tackles, three sacks, three interceptions (one returned for a touchdown), three forced fumbles and one punt return touchdown.
“Maurice Leggett has shown the ability to change games defensively for us for a number of seasons now,” said general manager Kyle Walters.
“His ability to simply make plays is evident every time he steps on the field, and his athleticism and versatility is important for us.”
In four seasons with Winnipeg, Leggett has recorded 220 defensive tackles, six special teams tackles, 11 sacks, 16 interceptions, four defensive touchdowns, six forced fumbles and two special teams touchdowns in 63 career games (all starts).
