The Toronto Argos have re-signed Oakville’s Declan Cross to a contract extension that will keep him with the Grey Cup champions through the 2020 season.

“Declan was a big part of our team’s success in 2017,” said Argos general manager Jim Popp. “On and off the field, he is a true team player who leads by example. He took a big step forward this past season and we look forward to working with him as he continues to develop and progress as an exciting football player and great teammate.”

The second-year fullback caught 36 passes for 366 yards and finished third on the team in receiving touchdowns (five) and yards after the catch (274). He made five catches in the Argos’ Grey Cup win over the Calgary Stampeders, including a pair of the two-point converts, one of which tied the game in the fourth quarter.

Cross was drafted in the fourth round, 27th overall, in the 2016 CFL draft and has played in all 36 of Toronto’s regular season games and two playoffs games since then.

He was also chosen as a special teams captain by his teammates last season and recorded 10 tackles.
