Had to happen. The guy couldn’t stay healthy. He’ll be 33/34 next year and even when he appeared re-habbed his once near-sprinter’s speed appeared a few steps slower.
That and getting run up for injury upon injury resulted in the Bombers parting way with their former all-star.
My guess is he’ll try to secure a final contract with a needy CFL team (or even the new guaranteed to fail league down south) before calling it a day. Kavis Reed is probably on the blower right now!
Bombers shouldn’t be so quick to blow this guy outta town. As a player, yes. But he could be a solid addition as a defensive assistant.
Same might be said of veteran LB Ian Wild.
I’ve been touting Wild as potential replacement for Richie Hall for a couple years - he’s got a solid football intellect but his size (small to medium) and propensity to injure has doomed him. He was a substantial downgrade from Juvan Santos-Knox in last weekend’s western final.
