The Winnipeg Blue Bombers have extended running back Andrew Harris through the 2020 season.

The CFL’s Most Outstanding Canadian was entering the final year of his contract in 2018.

Harris begins his third season with the Bombers after signing as a free agent prior to the 2016 campaign. He finished the 2017 season leading the league in rushing (1,035 yards) and set a CFL record for receptions by a running back, leading the entire CFL in passes caught with 105. Harris finished the season with six rushing touchdowns and one receiving score.

Since joining Winnipeg, he has rushed for 2,035 yards and 1,488 receiving yards, also adding 12 touchdowns over that span.
