Bombers have new D-Lineman

Bombers bring in Ferrara
July 11, 2006 -- 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?

Little suprised we didnt sign Booker instead but this is fine. Who knows how long he will be with us. Warner and Oosterhuis could still play on saturday.

its over before it began, Ferrara has gone home, he decided to quit....Berry says they will try to get Booker here tomorrow but failing that they will have to go to 3 - 4 defence with Hebert...its not too late to change your pick in Daves pool yet.....

...boy that was quick...Donny should have been called first anyway... in my opinion..after watching Jon Ostierhaus...i don't see why we would have to bring anyone in period....except for back-up....probably what Frank didn't he hit the road.. :roll:

I thought Oosty has a separated shoulder.....we have nobody left....

...oh boy...i didn;t hear that one....I hope Brooksy can get to the Peg, fast,,,or i can see Edwards running for a few,,,Barrin is going to have to cover a lot of ground....woah'... :rockin: ...but i'm staying with my VIRT. picks Pigseye...i still think it;s gonna be close.. :roll:

at least we can deflect some ridicule if the unthinkable happens and the Als lay a lickin on us......not that we would ever stoop to that level....unlike some around here.....:slight_smile:

Sometimes you gotta say.....what the heck......go bombers......
