Bombers Sign Weston Dressler



The Winnipeg Blue Bombers today announce the signing of eight-year CFL veteran Weston Dressler to a two-year contract. 

Dressler joins the Blue and Gold after eight seasons with Saskatchewan, where he has been one of the league’s most productive receivers since his arrival in 2008. The 5-7,180 pound Bismarck, ND product is a two-time CFL All-Star, and has been named a Division All-Star on four occasions. He has accumulated 7,797 receiving yards on 539 receptions, with 50 touchdowns.  

“Adding a veteran player with his skillset was really a no-brainer for us,” said Blue Bombers General Manager Kyle Walters. “Coach O’Shea was immediately interested in adding him to our offensive lineup, and we’re very excited to have Weston on our side moving forward.”

“I’m beyond excited to start my career as a Winnipeg Blue Bomber,” said Dressler. “It’s widely known the loyalty their fans have, and the passion the city and province have for the Bombers. The stadium is hands down the loudest in the CFL. And there are great football people in the organization. We have a quarterback who I think is as good as anyone in this league, and some really solid pieces around him. I’m really looking forward to the days ahead.”

Dressler has five 1000 yard seasons and 25 career 100-yard receiving games. Including his work on special teams, he has tallied 55 career touchdowns in the CFL. He’s played in seven career playoff games, and two Grey Cup’s, winning in 2013.

This will come back to bite Jones in the ass. An argument could be made on Chick, but not on Dressler!

Lawless and Roddy are both saying the contract is in that 170-175 range. Any idea what the Rider offer was or did they make one? I have to think they could have worked something out.

Jones = clueless buffoon.

He has ripped the heart of Rider Nation out and given it to Winnipeg

I'm betting the number he signed for was no more than he was offered here. In fact it has been reported his agent told Rider management that he wouldn't take less and the amount Taman signed him to, and wanted the full amount. He was supposed to get top 3 receiver money but he is no way in the top three receivers of the CFL, now or in the future. Winnipeg will suck again and his numbers will drop further. He let his ego get in the way so good riddance. The Riders will have a very good offence and killer defence. The know nothings who think we should have overpaid for a mediocre receiver are just what they are; know nothings. Jones and crew have forgotten more than those idiots will ever know! Trolls suck.

Mr. Jones = astute business man, world class professional football coach, vice president, denfensive coordinator. No such thing as rider nation.
Saskatchewan Roughriders = Riderville.
