ARGOS RE-SIGN TWO-TIME CFL ALL-STAR S.J. GREEN THROUGH 2019

Monday, February 5, 2018 — TORONTO – The Toronto Argonauts announced today that the team has signed international wide receiver S.J. Green to a two-year contract through the 2019 season.

“SJ had a remarkable season last year and was a huge part of our team’s success,” said Argos General Manager, Jim Popp. “He is a fierce competitor and brings veteran leadership to our locker room. We are excited to welcome him back for another two seasons and reunite the remarkable Ray-Green connection in 2018.”

Green, 32, had a career year in 2017, his first with the Argos after being acquired via trade with the Montreal Alouettes.

The 11-year CFL veteran started all 18 regular season games and set career-highs in receptions (104) and receiving yards (1,462), figures that ranked fifth in Argos single-season history and second in the CFL last season. He led the league in targets (169) and receptions 20+ yards downfield (23) while hauling in 10 touchdowns to earn his second career CFL All-Star nod and sixth career East Division All-Star honours.

The 6-2, 216-pound native of Brandon, Florida, moved from 61st to 43rd on the all-time receiving list in 2017, finishing the campaign with 8,088 career receiving yards. In 134 career CFL games, Green has tallied 548 receptions, 8,088 receiving yards, and 52 touchdowns.
