Bombers bring in Ferrara
July 11, 2006
Sportsnet.ca -- The Winnipeg Blue Bombers have signed former BC Lions defensive lineman Frank Ferrara, Sportsnet's Football Insider Eric Tillman has learned.
Ferrara, 29, had played in the National Football League (New York Giants and San Diego Chargers), as well as in NFL Europe, before coming to Canada in 2005 where he played extensively for the Lions. The all-time sacks leader at the University of Rhode Island was released at the conclusion of BC's 2006 training camp.
In Winnipeg, if activated, the 6-3, 275-pounder will replace standout Ron Warner who sprained his left MCL in last week's 24-17 win over the Toronto Argonauts at Rogers Centre.
The surprising 3-1 Bombers host undefeated Montreal (3-0) Saturday in an important East Division contest.
so BC fans, is this guy any good?
