Calgary Stampeders re-sign top returner Terry Williams

CALGARY — One of the heroes of the Calgary Stampeders’ 2018 Grey Cup win is staying with the CFL team.

Terry Williams, who returned a punt 97 yards for a touchdown in the Stamps’ Grey Cup victory over the Ottawa Redblacks, re-signed with the team on Friday.

The native of Morristown, N.J., tied a Stamps single-season record last year by returning three punts for touchdowns.

“I’m excited to be back,” said the running back/returner, who joined the Stamps in 2017. “Calgary was the first team that believed in me and I couldn’t imagine being anywhere else, especially after winning the Grey Cup last year.”

Elsewhere, the Ottawa Redblacks re-signed quarterback Dominique Davis to a two-year contract and signed former Winnipeg Blue Bombers defensive back Chris Randle.

Davis was the backup to Redblacks starter Trevor Harris last year. Harris can become a free agent on Feb. 12.

Randle was released by Winnipeg earlier this month after five seasons with the Bombers.

Meanwhile, Winnipeg re-signed Canadian linebacker Shayne Gauthier to a two-year deal.

The native of Dolbeau-Mistassini, Que., has spent the past three seasons with Winnipeg after being selected in the fourth round of the 2016 CFL draft. He has appeared in 31 games, making 28 special teams tackles and recording one forced fumble.

Also Friday, Edmonton Eskimos re-signed linebacker Korey Jones. He had 13 defensive tackles, 14 special teams tackles and one interception last year.

The Eskmios also signed Canadian receiver Harry McMaster. Edmonton took the Niagara Falls, Ont., native and Western University product in the seventh round of the 2018 draft.
