VIDEO: Buck Pierce Bids Farewell to the Blue Bombers

WINNIPEG — Buck Pierce said his farewells on Monday before leaving the Winnipeg Blue Bombers for a return to his former team.

The Bombers traded Pierce on Sunday to the B.C. Lions in exchange for Canadian receiver Akeem Foster.

Speaking to the media for over 15 minutes, Pierce thanked the fans and Blue Bombers for his time in Winnipeg, which he called his home. Pierce said he hopes to return one day and be a part of the organization that signed him in 2010 in some aspect.

“I was given an opportunity when a lot of people didn’t give me an opportunity to be a part of something that was great. I’m truly blessed to have had the opportunity to don the Blue Bomber uniform for four seasons. Football aside, it’s been a great thing for me to be here in this city and be involved in this community,” Pierce said.

As for his role with the Lions — Pierce couldn’t speak on that just yet, but did say he was surprised to be welcomed back by Lions’ GM Wally Buono, who he previously played for before coming to Winnipeg.

“I’ll be a stronger person when I come out of this,” Pierce said during a morning news conference.

The 28-year-old import stayed overnight in Regina following the Labour Day Classic, where doctors were able to reconnect his elbow. Many have speculated his season may be over with the Bombers, but Pierce didn’t allude to that and remains positive on his future with the team. “I’m still looking at the Grey Cup date,” he said, as he showed off the brace on his right arm.

QB Steven Jyles will get the start when the Bombers host the Roughriders this Sunday in the Banjo Bowl. As of 10 a.m. this morning, tickets were sold out for the popular annual matchup.
