Bombers add linebacker Ejiro Kuale

  • Print

The Winnipeg Blue Bombers have found a presence to man the middle of their defence in veteran linebacker Ejiro Kuale.

The club announced today the addition of Kuale (6-2, 229, LSU), a five-year CFL vet who has appeared in 59 games, 32 as a starter. Kuale was released by the Saskatchewan Roughriders late last month after splitting the 2013 campaign with the Riders and Montreal Alouettes. He spent the majority of his CFL career in Toronto and was part of the 2012 Grey Cup champion Argonauts.

Kuale originally came north to Canada to the Calgary Stampeders, but was released before joining the Argonauts in 2010. Ironically, it was during the 2011 season in which Kuale was fined an undisclosed amount by the CFL for a late hit on then-Bombers quarterback Buck Pierce, now an assistant coach with the team.

Kuale has 98 career defensive tackles, 19 special teams tackles, two forced fumbles, and one fumble recovery and has played in four playoff games and one Grey Cup.
