TORONTO – The Toronto Argonauts announced today they have re-signed Canadian RB Andrew Harris.

 Harris, 35, played eight regular season games for Toronto in 2022, before an injury sidelined him for the remaining 10 games of the season but rehabbed his way back to play in the Eastern Final, scoring a touchdown and then rushing for 55 yards in the Grey Cup, winning his third straight title. Harris ran for 490 yards and caught 23 passes for 180 yards in those eight regular season games and surpassed 10,000 career rushing yards, becoming just the sixth player in CFL history to achieve the feat. He re-joins the Argos with one of the most decorated resumes for a running back in CFL history. Four Grey Cup championships (’11, ’19, ’21, ‘22), five CFL All-Star nominations (’12, ’15-’18), six West All-Star nominations (’12, ’15-’19), Most Outstanding Canadian Award (’17), Grey Cup Most Valuable Canadian (’11, ’19), Grey Cup Most Valuable Player (’19), led the league in rushing three times (’17-’19) and is the CFL career leader for rushing yards by a Canadian. The Winnipeg native spent 2016-2021 playing for his hometown Blue Bombers where he would rush for over 5,000 yards and 25 touchdowns while catching 340 passes for more than 2,500 receiving yards and another 10 majors. The 5’10, 216lb running back began his CFL career with the B.C. Lions in 2010 and would spend the first six seasons of his CFL career with the Leos (2010-2015), rushing for more than 1,000 yards twice while winning his first Grey Cup in just his second season in the league. Harris has accumulated 10,151 rushing yards, 599 receptions, 5,403 receiving yards and 83 total touchdowns over his 184 career regular season games.
