Good signing, how much was the contract worth?

Very glad he is back, we are retaining much of our top end D talent. Over all roster I want Bryant to be the next name we extend.

This is the way.

Here's hoping Walters can make it all work.

The foundation stone of our defence. Great to have him returning. Dominant player and team leader.

Good work Walters.

Blue Bombers extend contract of CFL's Most Outstanding Defensive Player Adam Bighill

WINNIPEG, MB., January 20, 2022 - The Winnipeg Blue Bombers today announce the club has signed all-star linebacker Adam Bighill to a 1-year contract extension. He had been scheduled to become a free agent next month.

Bighill (5-10, 219; Central Washington University; born: October 16, 1988, in Montesano, WA) returns in 2022 for a fourth season with the Blue Bombers and his 10th in the Canadian Football League.

One of the most decorated defenders in league history, Bighill?s 2021 season was one of his finest as he led the CFL's stingiest defence with 70 tackles and added two quarterback sacks, two interceptions and two fumble recoveries - one for a touchdown. He was busy in the playoffs, too, registering eight tackles in the Western Final and another five in the 108th Grey Cup.

Those numbers not only earned him his a spot on the CFL All-Star Team for a sixth time, but also saw him named the league's Most Outstanding Defensive Player for the third time in his career after winning in his first season with the Blue Bombers in 2018 and in 2015 as a member of the B.C. Lions.

Now a three-time Grey Cup champion - 2019 and 2021 with the Blue Bombers and 2011 with the Lions - Bighill has played in 146 games in his CFL career and ranks eighth in league history all-time in total tackles.

In his three seasons as a member of the Blue Bombers, he has appeared in 47 regular season games and has racked up 236 tackles, 10 sacks, six interceptions, six fumble recoveries and scored two touchdowns.

So weird, I was walking out of the YMCA today and someone told me BigHill retired!?!?

Then get into my car and hear Walters saying Adam extended one year. What gives!

Whoever told you Biggie retired was obviously full of beans. Maybe he meant Adams?

Another 1 year deal, kind of sucks. We will have to go thought this all over again next year. But it's nice having him back.

He probably said he resigned, when he meant to say he re-signed.

Great news....yet I'm curious as to why the Bombers haven't signed the MOP and MVP in the last Grey Cup?   He should be the highest paid QB in the CFL based on his 17-2 record.    He really only lost that one game to Toronto and was pulled early in a meaningless loss near the end of the season.

He has undoubtedly earned this and other teams would be chomping at the bit to offer him up to 600K or possibly higher.....hopefully I worry for nought and he is in the process of negotiating his new contract with the Bombers as we speak.    I'm usually patient but hurry already dammit!!

Glad Bighill is back. Money was probably not an issue. Just probably was contemplating retirement instead?

Collaros should be back.. if not, we will have a riot at the stadium in our hands.
