The Winnipeg Blue Bombers have extended defensive tackle Jake Thomas on a one-year contract.

The New Brunswick native recorded 92 defensive tackles, 13 sacks, three forced fumbles and one interception in 119 games played (25 starts).

“I’m very excited to be returning for my eighth year with the Bombers,” said Thomas. “Winnipeg and the organization have become like a second home to me, and to be able to have another shot at our ultimate goal is something I am very appreciative for.”

In 2018, Thomas recorded three sacks, 17 defensive tackles and two forced fumbles while appearing in all 18 games.
