The Ottawa Redblacks have agreed to a contract extension with receiver Chris Williams.

Williams led the East Division champions with 88 catches for 1,214 yards last season, his first with Ottawa.

The 28-year-old American anchored a Redblacks receiving corps that featured four 1,000-yard performers in 2016.

Williams also had 57 punt returns for 338 yards and five kickoff returns for 82 yards.

The five-foot-nine, 155-pound dynamo made his CFL debut with the Hamilton Tiger-Cats in 2011 and captured the league's top rookie award before named its outstanding special-teams performer the following season.

He spent time in the NFL with New Orleans and Chicago in 2013-14 before joining the Redblacks.
