Training camp: Day 7

  • Print

Breaking news from Bomberland – the club has sent a conditional draft pick (likely a sixth rounder) to the Calgary Stampeders for Canadian punter Mike Renaud.

At the same time, import punter Bradley Pierson was released.

Renaud (6-3, 215) was signed this February by the Stampeders after the Grey-Cup champs had feared they had lost veteran punter Burke Dales. But when Dales opted to return, it made Renaud expendable.

He attended training camp with the Montreal Alouettes in 2006 and – get this – kicked last year for the Monchengladbach Mavericks of the German Football League. He was also drafted by Team Ohio of the United National Gridiron League, whatever that is.

He was a three-time Quebec Conference all-star and two-time CIS All-Canadian in 2004 and 2005.

The Bombers have also made some other roster adjustments, releasing OL Kyle Sleightholm, DL Keith Saunders, OL Doug Amouzouvi and WR Tyrone Timmons while adding WR Terry Firr and OL Lorne Plante, both ex U of M Bisons, and LB Johnny Baldwin.

Meanwhile, WR Chris Jackson has returned home to deal with a family illness and LB Thaine Carter, who had his shoulder separated last week, will have it evaluated in the next few days. If he has surgery, he’s gone for the year; if he chooses to rehab it, he could return to Queen’s University for this season.
