Bombers Add Two Players to Practice Roster

By Brian Schultz

Coming off their bye week, the Winnipeg Blue Bombers got back on the practice field today with two new players at their disposal.

The team signed import offensive tackle Marlon Winn and import defensive lineman Jeremy Maddox to the practice roster on Tuesday.

Winn was a three-year starter at Texas Tech and played both right tackle and left tackle. He started all 13 games as a senior and anchored an offensive line that won the Alamo Bowl against Michigan State and earned All-Big 12 Honorable Mention recognition.

Maddox was named First-Team All-SWAC in his sophomore year after leading the Southwestern Athletic Conference with nine sacks. He currently sits second in school history behind current Indianapolis Colts star Robert Mathis in sacks and tackles for loss.

The Bombers face Saskatchewan on the road September 5 before returning home to go head-to-head with the Roughriders again on September 12.
