The Toronto Argonauts have re-signed wide receiver Spencer Watt through the 2014 season.

The native of North Vancouver, B.C., caught 34 passes for 424 yards in 17 games last season. In three seasons in Toronto Watt has 77 receptions for 970 yards and three touchdowns.

"Spencer just finished his third CFL season and he's still only 24 years old. He is an athletic, young Canadian receiver and we believe he played his best football during the second half of last season," Argos general manager Jim Barker said in a statement. "We expect that he'll continue to grow and develop into a top receiver in this league and we're excited to have him in Toronto for the future."

Watt was drafted in the third round (18th overall) of the 2010 CFL Canadian draft out of Simon Fraser University. During his rookie season, Watt earned CFL Canadian player of the week honours for his Week 19 performance against the Montreal Alouettes, where he had 140 yards and two touchdowns on six receptions.

The Argos signed import running back Adonis Thomas. Thomas most recently attended the Cleveland Browns' mini-camp.
