A key player on the Winnipeg Blue Bombers special teams will be back with the team for at least one more season.
Kicker Justin Medlock has signed a one year contract with Winnipeg just before he was set to become a free agent.
This will be Medlock’s third season with the Bombers. He was the team’s most outstanding special teams player in both seasons with the Bombers. This year he had an 80 per cent success rate on his field goal attempts and has lead the CFL in scoring in both seasons with the Blue and Gold.
After the Bombers lost in the Western Division semi-final, Medlock said he was contemplating all options for his future including retirement.
“I’ve been thinking about doing some other things in life, maybe, so we’ll see,” Medlock said at the time. “I’m also considering coming back, too. I love playing here.”
Bomber’s GM Kyle Walters has said bringing Medlock back was his top priority.
