The Winnipeg Blue Bombers have signed former Edmonton Eskimos receiver Adarius Bowman to a one-year contract.

The Tennessee native spent the past seven seasons in Edmonton, where he led the CFL in yardage (1,761), receptions (120) and targets (168) in 2016.

“Adarius will certainly add another level of playmaking ability to our offence,” said general manager Kyle Walters.


“He has grown tremendously both on and off the field over his years in the CFL, and we’re excited to re-unite him with Matt Nichols and watch him work with our receivers in 2018.”

Bowman has recorded 62 receptions of over 30 yards and has 36 100-yard receiving games during his career.

Bowman will sign autographs Saturday at the Bomber Store with running back Andrew Harris from noon to 2 p.m.
