WINNIPEG — The Winnipeg Blue Bombers signed sophomore defensive back Bruce Johnson to a contract extension through the 2018 season Monday.

Johnson would’ve been eligible to become a free agent in February.

Johnson has started every game since joining the Bombers as a free agent in April 2014.

He’s made 28 career starts, registering 91 tackles, two interceptions and a fumble recovery.

“Bruce is a very key part of our defensive secondary,” Bombers GM Kyle Walters said in a statement. “He’s been extremely steady and reliable for us since he first stepped on the field last season.

“It was important for us to lock up a key piece of our defence moving forward, and we’re pleased Bruce also felt the desire to remain a Blue Bomber.”
