The Edmonton Football Team has restructured the contract for Trevor Harris, keeping the starting quarterback with the squad through 2022.

The team said the restructured contract helps the club meet salary-cap requirements.

Harris signed with Edmonton last year and was named the club’s most outstanding player.

Prior to Edmonton, Harris spent four seasons with the Toronto Argonauts (2012-15) and three seasons with the Ottawa Redblacks (2016-18).
