Bombers release Armstrong

  • Print

The Bombers have made official this afternoon the release of receiver Derick Armstrong after finding possible trade interest in the 30-year-old across the Canadian Football League to be non-existent.


The move will bring to a close a soap opera that has dominated headlines all week in Winnipeg after Armstrong dressed but refused to enter last week’s loss to the Edmonton Eskimos when informed a few hours before kickoff that he would not be starting, but dressing as one of three designated imports. Armstrong’s decision not to play damaged his credibility among his teammates and his future in Winnipeg all but sealed when he got into a heated argument with head coach Mike Kelly over the weekend.


No word on what CFL teams, if any, may be interested in Armstrong now that he is on the street.


Meanwhile, the club finally confirmed that former Hamilton Tiger-Cats receiver Scott Mitchell has been added to the practice roster.
