Blue Bombers add two, release Sims-Walker

THE Winnipeg Blue Bombers have added two more pieces and said farewell to another with the release of receiver Mike Sims-Walker.

Coming aboard are defensive back Maurice Leggett and defensive end Stafford Gatling, both imports.

-- Leggett (5-11, 188; Valdosta State) spent the past two seasons in the Arena Football League with Utah and Philadelphia after stints with Kansas City and Detroit in the NFL. Signed by the Chiefs in 2008, Leggett won the Mack Lee Hill Award as the team's top rookie -- becoming the first undrafted rookie to win the award. He started eight games that season, but was injured in 2009 and 2010. He then attended Lions' training camp in 2011 before heading to the AFL.

-- Gatling (6-4, 249, Ohio) played college football at Ohio, where he was a team captain in 2010. He spent four seasons at Ohio before being signed by the New York Jets in 2011.
