The Winnipeg Blue Bombers have signed import wide receiver Mike Sims-Walker to their roster.

The former NFL receiver comes form Orlando, Florida, and was selected by the Jacksonville Jaguars in the third round (79th overall) of the 2007 NFL Draft following a standout collegiate career that saw him record 184 receptions for 2,561 yards in 46 games

“Mike is a very experienced receiver who we feel possesses great skill that could allow him to excel on our wide-open fields in Canada,” said Blue Bombers acting general manager Kyle Walters. “We’re looking forward to getting him acclimated to the CFL game.”

The 28-year-old was released by the St. Louis Rams Rams in October after catching 11 passes for 139 yards and returned to Jacksonville that season but suffered a season-ending injury in November.
