The Winnipeg Blue Bombers have signed free agent safety Cauchy Muamba.
Muamba is the brother of Blue Bombers linebacker Henoc Muamba.
Muamba spent the past three seasons with the B.C. Lions and developed into a starter last year recording 41 tackles and two interceptions.
The Bombers were beat to the punch on a release as Henoc Muamba issued a tweet in the last hour welcoming his brother to the Bombers.
The Bombers now have two starting safeties under contract with Muamba and Ian Logan.
"We are very pleased to lock up a Canadian player with Cauchy’s ability and potential. We feel he will add immediate depth to our roster and also an added locker room presence with his brother Henoc already in our organization and a big part of our defence," said GM Joe Mack.
