The Winnipeg Blue Bombers announced Tuesday they have signed national offensive lineman Michael Couture to a one-year extension.
The 10th overall selection in the 2016 CFL Draft, Couture has played in all 54 games since joining the team. Couture has made two starts and played across the offensive line.
“Michael came in and was immediately inserted into the game day roster,” General Manager Kyle Walters said in a team release. “To do that right out of college is not an easy feat, and he has continued to progress in so many facets of his game over his first three seasons with us. Certainly drafting and developing offensive linemen is very important for us, and we’re excited to bring Michael back for 2019.”
