Let the Extension Game Continue: Glenn Re-ups

If seems that the off-season has two parts: one, free agency; two, contract extensions.

The Cats have already inked Markeith Knowlton, Jamall Johnson, Quinton Porter and Maurice Mann to extensions, and now it looks like Kevin Glenn has been extended as well.

As I noted not too long ago, I felt that if the Ti-Cats were going to go on an extending spree that one of the two guys they NEEDED to get a deal done with was Kevin Glenn – the other, Arland Bruce, is rumoured to be getting an extension soon as well.

Glenn had a monster year in 2010 and continues to be one of the premier Quarterbacks in the CFL. The only thing missing from his résumé is a Grey Cup ring. I think he has his best shot to get that elusive championship with the Tiger-Cats in the next couple of years.

I understand that the deal is for one more year, plus an option, but I can't imagine Glenn playing for any other team, especially if he even comes close to replicating his 2010 success. I'm not saying he needs to put up 5,000 yards and over 30 TDs every year, but something close to that would ensure that he stays Hamilton's signal caller until the day he retires.

Great job keeping Glenn. Now, make that Bruce extension official, and the off-season will be a roaring success.
