Rider fans can consider it a late Christmas present — the team has signed Crezdon Butler to a one-year contract extension.
In his first CFL season, Butler was a consistent force in the secondary for the green and white.
He picked up 39 defensive tackles, four pass knockdowns, two sacks and a forced fumble during 15 regular season games.
Throughout the playoffs, Butler added eight defensive tackles and one fumble recovery. He was a starter in the crossover East Semi-Final in Ottawa and the East Final in Toronto.
The defensive back previously spent several seasons on NFL rosters, playing in 46 career games.
