Andre Durie, Argonauts strike contract extension
Slotback topped CFL with career-high 92 catches in 2013
The Toronto Argonauts re-signed slotback Andre Durie to a contract extension Monday.
The Argos announced Durie is under contract through the 2016 season. Durie signed with Toronto as an undrafted free agent in 2007 and has spent his entire Canadian Football League career with the club.
"We believe Andre Durie is one of the most talented players in our league, and he's Canadian," Argos general manager Jim Barker said in a statement. "He has been a very productive member of our offence and a strong contributor on special teams.
"Andre has proven to be a valuable member of the Toronto community and we're excited to keep him at home to continue his work on and off the field."
Durie, 32, led the CFL with a career-high 92 catches last season for 986 yards and three touchdowns.
The five-foot-10, 199-pound native of Mississauga, Ont., has spent his entire seven-year career with Toronto, helping the Argos win a Grey Cup title in 2012.
"In 2007, the team believed in me and gave me a chance to play the game I truly love, even after an injury that nearly ended my career," Durie said. "I am very proud and excited to continue my career as an Argonaut and I will continue to play like every game could be my last for my city and this organization."
Durie, who played running back during his university career at York, has registered 272 catches for 3,150 yards and 13 TDs with Toronto.
