The Calgary Stampeders have taken one of the biggest names off the pending free-agent list.
Running back Joffrey Reynolds signed a contract extension with the team Friday, keeping him in in Red and White for at least the next two seasons.
The 2009 West Division most outstanding player just turned 30, but he keeps getting better. The Tyler, Tex., product led the CFL in yards from scrimmage this season and was the most consistent player throughout the year.
This deal assures that Reynolds will pass Kelvin Anderson for most rushing yards in franchise history. He's only 756 yards behind Anderson on the all-time list.
Throughout his six-year career, Reynolds hasn't missed a game due to injury at one of the most demanding positions on the field.
"Joffrey is a key part of our team and we’re delighted to have him back," said Stamps GM and head coach John Hufnagel. "He is one of the premier backs in the Canadian Football League and his production speaks for itself. He is the model of consistency and professionalism."
