Bombers trade Bryant, Franklin to Stampeders

  • Print

MONTREAL - The Winnipeg Blue Bombers haven’t wasted any time to make changes in the wake of Sunday afternoon’s loss to the Montreal Alouettes.

The Bombers have traded Romby Bryant and Arjei Franklin to the Calgary Stampeders, reportedly for receivers Jabari Arthur and Titus Ryan, defensive lineman Odell Willis and two 2010 draft picks (fourth and sixth rounds).

Bryant, 29, is in his second CFL season and has 20 catches for 232 yards and no touchdowns through 11 games. Last season, he led the Bombers with 1,205 yards and nine touchdowns on 65 receptions. He is six-foot-one, 191 pounds and spent four seasons in the National Football League before joining the Bombers. He is a product of Tulsa University.

Franklin, 27, has missed most of this season with an ankle injury and has five catches for 53 yards. He started all 18 regular-season games for Winnipeg in 2008 and had 49 catches for 566 yards and a touchdown. In 2007, he caught 36 passes for 452 yards. Franklin is five-foot-11, 192 pounds and is in his fourth CFL season out of University of Windsor.

 Willis and Ryan were in their first season with Calgary, while Arthur was in his second.
