The Winnipeg Blue Bombers have re-signed defensive end Willie Jefferson to a one-year contract extension.

The Texas-born all-star was scheduled to become a free agent in February.

Jefferson returns for his fifth season with the Blue Bombers and 10th in the CFL, including his days with Edmonton (2014-15) and Saskatchewan (2016-18).

Jefferson was named a CFL all-star for the fifth time in his career in 2023 and was also selected as the Blue Bombers’ most outstanding defensive player for a third time.
