Barrin Simpson's career with the Winnipeg Blue Bombers might be over for good this time.
The club announced on Tuesday that they released the import linebacker, who they feuded with during the regular season. "Barrin has always been a solid player in this league and we thank him for his hard work and dedicated commitment to the Winnipeg Blue Bombers," Interim Vice-President of Football Operations Ross Hodgkinson said in a statement. "We certainly would consider the possibility of Barrin returning with the understanding of it being a fit for both parties."
Simpson's dispute with Bombers started in the summer when he asked for a trade after being asked by the club to take a back-up role.
The Blue Bombers attempted to put Simpson on the nine-game injured list, but he would not sign the paper work. The Canadian Football League later removed Simpson from the list.
Simpson was then sent home by the team for approximately two weeks, before returning the club in early October to finish out the year. He has spent the past four seasons with the Blue Bombers, playing in 52 regular season games, three playoff games and one Grey Cup during that time
Could be perfect if MK goes to the NFL.
