The Winnipeg Blue Bombers locked up one of their top deep threats as the team announced that they have extended the contract of receiver Terrence Edwards on Saturday.  Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

In 15 regular season contests, the 30-year old Edwards made 76 catches for 1,010 yards and seven touchdowns.  He did not play in the East semi-final due to an injury.

"We are very pleased to extend one of our top receivers from the last two seasons. His veteran presence will definitely add to the professionalism of our training camp,” said Bombers' head coach Mike Kelly in a statement.

The University of Georgia product signed with the Blue Bombers as a free agent in 2007.

In 33 regular season games, Edwaards has 156 catches for 2,290 yards and 16 touchdowns.
