MISSISSAUGA, Ont. -- Ricky Ray has another big-play receiver at his disposal.

The Toronto Argonauts signed veteran receiver Romby Bryant on Tuesday to a deal that will take him through the 2014 season.

"It's rare to find a veteran receiver that is as gifted and versatile as Romby Bryant," Argos general manager Jim Barker said in a statement. "He does all of the little things that don't necessarily show up on the stats sheet.

"His willingness to contribute in all phases of the game rubs off on the rest of the locker-room which makes your whole team better. Romby is a consummate professional and we are happy he is here to compete for a position on our roster."

Bryant had 183 catches for 2,477 yards and 22 touchdowns the last three seasons with the Calgary Stampeders. Bryant, who is entering his sixth CFL season, has 295 career receptions for 4,428 yards and 31 TDs.

Bryant's arrival gives veteran quarterback Ray another playmaker. Toronto's Chad Owens was the CFL's leading receiver for the 2012 Grey Cup champions with 94 catches for 1,328 yards and six TDs en route to being named the league's outstanding player.

"I think Toronto is an elite team and every receiver who has ever played in the CFL would be lying if they said they never thought about playing with Ricky Ray," Bryant said. "I have been in the league for some time now, and I look forward to working with my new coaches and teammates to try and win another Grey Cup for the city."
