Weston Dressler Signs with CFL’s Winnipeg Blue Bombers
Just two weeks after being released by the Saskatchewan Roughriders, Weston Dressler already has already found a new home in Winnipeg.
The Canadian Football League's Winnipeg Blue Bombers announced Tuesday, January 26th, that they had signed the former Bismarck High School standout to a two-year contract, according to the Winnipeg Sun.
The Blue Bombers announced the deal via Twitter:
The deal is believed to be in the $170,000 to $180,000 range.
Dressler signed with Saskatchewan in 2008, after going undrafted in the NFL. Outside of a short stint with the NFL's Kansas City Chiefs, Dressler spent his whole professional career with the Roughriders. He helped lead the team to the Grey Cup in 2013.
Last season, Dressler caught 70 passes for 941 yards and six touchdowns. He will be reunited with former Roughriders quarterback Drew Willy in Winnipeg.
