MONTREAL — The Montreal Alouettes announced on Wednesday that they have extended National wide receiver Tyson Philpot for an additional season. He is now under contract through the 2025 season.

Philpot caught Cody Fajardo‘s game winning touchdown pass with 13 seconds remaining in last month’s 110th Grey Cup game. His winning touchdown took the Alouettes to their eighth title in their history. He ended the game with 63 yards on six receptions.

“Tyson fully deserves this vote of confidence. He is constantly improving and in his case, the best is yet to come,” said Éric Deslauriers, the senior director of football operations and player personnel for the Alouettes. “He has gained experience this year and even though he is only in his second pro season, he has never been afraid to take on more responsibility.”

He was named the East Division’s Most Outstanding Rookie last year.
