TORONTO - The Toronto Argonauts re-signed running back Chad Kackert on Friday.
Kackert, who was the MVP of Toronto's Grey Cup win over Calgary in November, became a free agent earlier Friday.
Kackert became Toronto's starting running back in August after the club released Cory Boyd, who was leading the CFL in rushing at the time. Kackert finished the regular season rushing for 638 yards on 100 carries with five TDs.
Kackert capped his season rushing for 133 yards and adding eight catches for 62 yards in Toronto's 35-22 win over Calgary in the 100th Grey Cup game at Rogers Centre.
