Bryant was named the CFL’s top lineman for a second straight season in November.

The nine-year veteran anchored a Winnipeg offensive line that helped the Bombers lead the CFL in rushing (134.9 yards per game) and pave the way for league rushing leader Andrew Harris (1,390 yards). And there’s no one else quarterback Matt Nichols wants protecting his blindside in the pocket.

“It goes without saying what Stanley means to me,” Nichols said. “The guys is the best in the business, and I feel very comfortable with him in the huddle.”

“There’s literally no worry in your mind about him. He’s going to be on assignment. He’s going to get his guy taken care of. He doesn’t miss.”
