No wrath, Bombers sign Khan

  • Print

WINNIPEG - Obby Khan is staying in Winnipeg.

The Blue Bombers have yet to announce his signing, but a CFL source confirmed the veteran centre will remain in blue and gold after testing free agency for four days this week.

Khan, 30, has spent the last five years in Winnipeg after beginning his career with the Ottawa Renegades and lives here year round. His countless charity appearances have twice earned him the Ed Kotowich Good Guy Award for sportsmanship and community work.

No details of the contract were released, but Sportsnet is reporting Khan’s new contract will pay him in the neighbourhood of $130,000 including a signing bonus. Khan, who recovered from a serious bout with colitis in 2008, started 16 games for the Bombers in 2009 and all 18 last season.

His return leaves just middle linebacker Joe Lobendahn as the lone remaining Bomber free agent. After testing the water earlier this week to gauge interest, Lobendahn is now negotiating again with the Bombers.
