REDBLACKS re-sign Dominique Davis, add Chris Randle

The Ottawa REDBLACKS have signed international quarterback Dominique Davis to a two-year contract extension, the club announced Friday. The REDBLACKS also announced they had reached a one-year agreement with international defensive back Chris Randle.

Returning to Ottawa for a second season, the 29-year-old completed 24 of his 39 attempted passes for 373 yards in 2018, reaching the end zone three times over the air and six more times as a ball carrier. Davis shined last November when he started the REDBLACKS’ final regular season game of 2018 against the Toronto Argonauts, throwing for 220 years and one touchdown in one half of play.

Randle comes to Ottawa after being released by the Winnipeg Blue Bombers earlier this month. The 30-year-old, 5-foot-11, 188 lbs defensive back played five seasons in Winnipeg, appeared in a total of 75 regular season games for the Bombers where he accumulated 12 interceptions, two sacks, and three forced fumbles. He also made 217 defensive tackles.

The Ottawa REDBLACKS will kick off their 2019 schedule with a rematch of the 106th Grey Cup game in Calgary before welcoming the Saskatchewan Roughriders in their home opener at TD Place. Fans can join Forever RNation today and experience every game at TD Place this season.
