The Toronto Argonauts signed linebacker Bear Woods to a one-year contract through the 2019 season.
The 32-year-old Woods missed most of the 2018 season after starting the campaign on the nine-game injured list to recover from surgery for a herniated disc. He returned in Week 11 and had 29 tackles over four games.
Woods joined the Argos as a free agent in 2017 after six seasons in Montreal. In his first season in Toronto he recorded 90 defensive tackles and two sacks during the regular-season and six tackles in the post-season as the Argonauts captured the Grey Cup.
"Bear is a veteran leader on and off the field and a player that has been one of the best at his position," Argos general manager Jim Popp said in a team release. "He was integral in helping us win a Grey Cup championship in 2017, the ultimate player, and we couldn’t be happier to have him healthy and ready to go in 2019."
