Less than a month after locking up Ricky Ray for the long term, the Toronto Argonauts locked up another one of their star players.
The Argos have signed Most Outstanding Player Chad Owens to a two-year contract extension.
"Extending Chad Owens' contract helps us to create continuity and ensures another key player remains in Double Blue for the foreseeable future," said GM Jim Barker in a team release.
"Chad is a dynamic player whose work ethic resonates within our locker room, and we are very happy he has committed to being an Argonaut."
Owens, a star both as a receiver on offence and returner on special teams, set the single season all-purpose yards record last season with 3,863 combined.
The 31-year-old from Hawaii was also effective in the post-season, helping the Argonauts win the 100th Grey Cup.
"I am very excited for the opportunity to remain in Toronto and continue to build off of what we were able to accomplish in 2012," Owens said in the release.
"I am looking forward to sharing more successes with the city, my teammates, our coaches and with the fans as we strive toward our ultimate goal of winning another Grey Cup."
Owens has spent the past three seasons in Toronto after starting his CFL career with the Montreal Alouettes.
