The Ottawa REDBLACKS have re-signed international receiver Diontae Spencer to a one-year contract extension, the club announced Wednesday.

Spencer, the CFL’s top pending free agent, had a breakout season with the REDBLACKS last year. Not only did the 25-year-old record 922 yards on 71 receptions in his first year with Ottawa, he also proved to be a dominant force in the return game. Along with a record-breaking performance against Hamilton last October in which he had 496 all-purpose yards, Spencer finished the year with 929 punt return yards, 607 kickoff return yards and 260 yards returning missed field goals.

“Diontae is dynamic player both on offence and on special teams and we hope to see him build on what we accomplished for us last year,” said REDBLACKS GM Marcel Desjardins.
