The Winnipeg Blue Bombers re-signed American safety Brandon Alexander to a two-year contract Friday.

The six-foot, 180-pound Alexander returns for a fifth season with Winnipeg. He was a CFL all-star last season, registering 36 tackles, eight special-teams tackles, two interceptions and a forced fumble in 13 regular-season games.

He added six combined tackles in Winnipeg's two playoff games, including the club's 33-25 overtime win over Hamilton for its second straight Grey Cup title.

Alexander has 162 tackles, six interceptions — one returned for a TD — and five forced fumbles in 52 regular-season games with the Bombers.
