Campbell returns for a sixth season with his hometown CFL club.

The six-foot-five, 292-pound lineman played all 18 regular-season games for the Argos in 2019.

Campbell caught a touchdown pass from McLeod Bethel-Thompson in a 28-27 win over Winnipeg in Week 8.

The York University product has played 50 games for the Argos since 2016.

Blake returns to his hometown after playing eight games for the Saskatchewan Roughriders in 2019.

The Montreal Alouettes traded the 35-year-old lineman to Saskatchewan in October 2018.
