Kicker Troy Westwood left the Bombers as the franchise’s all-time leading scorer, but his career in Winnipeg was plagued by issues of consistency.Photograph by: Brent Foster, National PostWINNIPEG - The Winnipeg Blue Bombers have signed veteran kicker Troy Westwood to their practice roster.

Westwood was cut by the team during training camp last season after a two-year feud with then head coach Doug Berry.

The Bombers lost punter Mike Renaud for the season due to a torn ACL in the knee of his kicking leg in a win two weekends ago over the Hamilton Tiger-Cats.

Place-kicker Alexis Serna handled the punting and place-kicking duties in Sunday’s 24-21 loss to the B.C. Lions and struggled with both jobs.

It’s believed Westwood will punt while Serna handles place-kicking duties.

I find it ironic that just before Serna went in to kick the missed field goal, the commentators said that he credited the great year he was having to "Kelly". (as they showed him laughing and joking with the coach)

One minute later he was hiding on the bench and the coach was nowhere near him. :roll:

So much for THAT ringing endorsement. :lol: Now Westwood is back. We will see how he gets along with Kelly :wink: ...should be interesting if he makes a mistake.

Having Kelly nowhere near him I'm sure is preferable to having Berry screaming in your face. . .

I miss seeing those veins pulsating in Berry's temples.

Right on.. let's hope Westwood is in fine form.. like he was when he was released!!!
