WINNIPEG – One of the CFL’s most pleasant surprises will be back in blue and gold for 2017.
Clarence Denmark has re-signed with the Winnipeg Blue Bombers after becoming a free agent Tuesday.
He decided to test the market but decided to come back to the only team he’s played for in his CFL career.
“There are certain players you simply have to figure out a way to make it work contractually,” Bombers general manager Kyle Walters said in a statement. “Clarence is one of those players. He is the definition of a pro both on and off the field and his production speaks for itself. He’s a leader by example and we are very pleased to have him return to our organization.”
Denmark was cut during the offseason last year, a salary cap victim after the Bombers spent big in free agency.
He was brought back in mid-July after the team’s receiving corps was decimated by injuries, and the 31-year-old had instant chemistry with Matt Nichols. He racked up a career-high eight touchdown grabs to go along with 705 yards and 53 catches.
In his 98 game CFL career, the American has 24 touchdowns and 4,870 yards.
