TORONTO - The Toronto Argonauts are bringing back offensive lineman Jeff Keeping.
He signed a two-year contract with the CFL team on Friday. Keeping spent three seasons with the Argos before playing in Montreal last season.
"We are glad to have Jeff back," said Argos GM Adam Rita. "He can play multiple positions for us and his versatility will help our overall picture. He will compete on the (offensive) line and his athleticism should make him a factor in his efforts to help our team."
Keeping was a second-round pick of the Argos in the 2005 Canadian draft and went on to be the team's nominee for top rookie at the end of that year.
During his four-year career, he has played various positions on offence and defence - including guard, nose tackle, tight end and fullback.
A graduate of the University of Western Ontario, Keeping grew up in nearby Uxbridge, Ont.
"I'm thrilled to be back in Toronto, rejoin many of my former teammates and meet some new ones," he said. "I've been training, preparing to be ready and come in and compete at a high level.
"I'm super excited for my family and friends to be at all my home games."
