Blue Bombers extend contract of CFL all-star offensive lineman Pat Neufeld

WINNIPEG, MB., November 24, 2022 - The Winnipeg Blue Bombers today announce the club has agreed to terms on a one-year contract extension with CFL all-star offensive lineman Pat Neufeld.

Neufeld (6-6, 307, Saskatchewan; born: December 26, 1988, in Regina, SK) returns to the Blue Bombers for what will be his 12th Canadian Football League season and ninth with Winnipeg. A versatile lineman who has made starts at both guard and tackle over his career in Winnipeg, Neufeld is coming off his second-consecutive all-star season, having been named to both the West Division and CFL All-Star teams in 2021 and 2022.

Neufeld appeared in 17 regular season games this year at right guard as well as in both the Western Final and Grey Cup, helping the Blue Bombers offence finish second in points, sacks surrendered and rushing yards and first in touchdowns, while running back Brady Oliveira posted the first 1,000-yard rushing season of his career.

Neufeld was originally selected by the Saskatchewan Roughriders in the fifth round of the 2010 CFL Draft and was acquired by the Bombers in a trade in 2013 for DE Alex Hall and a second-round pick in the 2014 draft.

He has appeared in 136 regular season games including 99 with the Blue Bombers, and last year was named the winner of the Cal Murphy Heart of a Legend Award presented to the player who has shown 'outstanding sportsmanship and dedication to the Canadian Football League and the community.'

Didn't think he was going anywhere. Sounds like the first of a number of contract extensions coming over the next couple of weeks. This is a good start.

I think you will be waiting awhile. They haven't even started talks yet. But good new, there's no for sale sign on his house.

He's been a rock solid addition to our O-Line since coming over from the Riders....

When he as traded, with SSK on a cup run, it must have been crushing.

Since then, he's gotten two rings and got to play on one of the best teams ever...

Good to have him back...

Yes, Patty is a must-have for a 2023 run.  What a season he had.  I thought he deserved MOOL.  But he whiffed a bit in the GC, certainly his worst game of the year, and that was disappointing.  In fact, most OL except maybe Bryant (and maybe Couture) whiffed a few times in that game.

Consistency is king and Patty is part of the heart & soul of our team, and a strong leader, that's for sure.  (His goofy videos and interviews with the guys are fun too.)

Kyle Walters is expected to have a media session this week so possibly some information will come from that.  At the very least, I would expect media to ask the question about Mike O'Shea's contract negotiations.
