Former Winnipeg Blue Bomber Alex Suber has signed a one-day contract with the organization to retire in Blue and Gold.
Suber joined the Bombers in 2010 and played five seasons at the halfback position.
The defensive back was traded to Toronto midway through the 2014 season, and finished his career with Saskatchewan in 2015.
“Alex was a consummate professional from the moment he arrived in Winnipeg six years ago,” said Blue Bombers general manager Kyle Walters. “He was one of those players who was willing to do whatever it was going to take to win a football game, and maintained a very team-first mentality throughout his career.”
Suber added, “Some of my most memorable years of football happened in the city of Winnipeg, and with that great organization. I’d like to give thanks to God, my family, friends and coaches who supported me throughout my career.”
The Middle Tennessee State product also said he’ll always consider himself a Blue Bomber and friendships he made in the city will last forever.
