Bombers officially extend offensive tackle Hardrick

WINNIPEG — The Winnipeg Blue Bombers announced Wednesday they’ve agreed to terms on a one-year contract extension with offensive tackle Jermarcus Hardrick.

The news comes a week after the club revealed it had agreed in principle with both Hardrick and fellow offensive tackle Stanley Bryant.

“I think it’s well-documented our offensive line is a major part of our team, both on and off the field,” said General Manager Kyle Walters. “Jermarcus would certainly be one of those players that exemplifies what we look for in an offensive lineman; tough, physical, emotional but controlled. His teammates really love him, and as an organization we appreciate everything he brings to the football field.”

Hardrick started 15 games in 2018, missing three due to injury. Over his three seasons in Winnipeg, Hardrick has started 49 games at right tackle, being named a West Division All-Star in 2017.

“I’ve said it many times, but I love this organization, my teammates, and just being in Winnipeg,” said Hardrick. “I can’t ever say enough about my passion for all of those things, and we are going to come back in 2019 and keep progressing towards our goal.”
