Bombers ship sack leader to Riders

  • Print

The Winnipeg Blue Bombers have traded defensive end Alex Hall to the Saskatchewan Roughriders for non-import offensive tackle Patrick Neufeld.

"Alex has been a great player for us over the past two seasons, however, we feel this move will be positive for the long-term betterment of the football team. We thank Alex for his tireless efforts and professionalism with us and wish him the best moving forward," Bombers acting general manager Kyle Walters said in a statement.

"In Patrick, we are receiving a Canadian offensive tackle who has experience in our league and who we feel can upgrade our offensive line."

The two teams also swapped draft picks, with the Bombers sending Saskatchewan a second rounder in 2014 and receiving from Saskatchewan a fourth rounder in 2015.

Hall is leading the CFL in sacks but was set to become a free agent at the end of this season and has made clear he intends to seek opportunities in the NFL next season.

Neufeld (6-5, 296, Saskatchewan) still has two years left on his contract after this season and is just 24.
