Blugh brought back by Argos

Leroy Blugh is back with the Double Blue.

Blugh, 36, re-signed Wednesday with the Toronto Argonauts on Wednesday.

Terms of the contract were not disclosed.

Blugh, a non-import defensive end, posted 10 tackles and one quarterback sacks in 10 games with Toronto last year.

"Leroy was an extremely important part of our team on the field and in the locker room last season as we fought our way back into the playoffs," Argos head coach Michael (Pinball) Clemons said in a statement.

Blugh initially signed with the Argonauts on Sept. 7, 2000, after spending 11 seasons with the Edmonton Eskimos.

"You cannot underestimate the value of leadership from your veteran players and we are thrilled that he will be back with the Argos in 2003."

Blugh has 333 tackles and 76 sacks in 216 games over his 14-year CFL career.

He was a two-time CFL West Division all-star (1996, 1998) and winner of the 1996 Most Outstanding Canadian Award with the Eskimos, who drafted him seventh overall out of Bishop's University in 1989.

Blugh registered 10 tackles and a sack in three Grey Cups with the Eskimos, winning once, 33-23 over Winnipeg in 1993.
