Blue Bombers extend QB Willy

May 1, 2015 - 6:09 PM Winnipeg, MB ( - The Winnipeg Blue Bombers have extended the contract of quarterback Drew Willy.

Willy was entering the final year of his contract, but the new pact will take him through the 2017 season.

"I'm very excited to remain a Blue Bomber following this season and get this agreement in place," said Willy in a statement Friday. "In just one season I have really grown to love the city of Winnipeg and the entire province of Manitoba. The passion they have for our game, and specifically the Blue Bombers, makes a decision like this much easier."

The Bombers acquired Willy from Saskatchewan in February 2014 and the former University of Buffalo star became Winnipeg's Most Outstanding Player for last season.

Willy threw for 3,769 yards, third-most in the CFL last season, completing 63.8 percent of his passes with 14 touchdowns and 16 interceptions in 17 games. He spent two years with Saskatchewan, starting only four games.
