Edmonton quarterback Trevor Harris restructures contract

EDMONTON — The Edmonton Football Team has restructured the contract for Trevor Harris, keeping the starting quarterback with the squad through 2022.

The team says the restructured contract helps the club meet salary-cap requirements.

Harris signed with Edmonton last year and was named the club’s most outstanding player.

He set playoffs records for consecutive completions (22) and completion percentage (92.3 per cent) in an East semifinal win over Montreal. Edmonton lost to Hamilton in the East final.

Prior to Edmonton, Harris spent four seasons with the Toronto Argonauts (2012-15) and three seasons with the Ottawa Redblacks (2016-18).

“Knowing what dollar amount he’d be at allows us to start planning accordingly for the rest of the team. We’re very fortunate to have a player like Trevor whose character and team-first attitude is even better than his outstanding play on the field,” Edmonton general manager Brock Sunderland said in a statement.

EXTENSIONS FOR TICATS EXECS

The Hamilton Tiger-Cats have extended the contracts of senior directors of personnel and co-managers of football operations Drew Allemang and Shawn Burke.

The deals come two days after the Ticats extended the contract of head coach Orlondo Steinauer.

Allemang has been part of the Ticats’ front office for 12 seasons. The Hamilton native has been assistant general manager, director of Canadian scouting, co-ordinator of Canadian player development and co-ordinator of football operations.

Burke, a native of Guelph, Ont., has served as assistant GM, director of football operations, director of football administration and director of community relations and communications.

“Drew and Shawn are two very bright and diligent football executives who both have a superb work ethic,” Ticats chief executive officer Scott Mitchell said in a statement. “They are also just great people who have spent their entire careers in the Tiger-Cat organization and have excelled in every role they have been in.”
