“Since 2014 there’s only been one football city for me. I can’t wait to be back in black and red in front of the fans at TD Place,” said Behar. “This city deserves our best and I promise to bring my best.”

The 26-year-old (five-foot-11, 204 pounds) had an incredible university career that saw him catch for 2,577 yards and 21 touchdowns in 30 games for the Ravens, twice earning All-Canadian honours.
