Thomas, one of the Bombers' fourth-round draft choices in this year's CFL draft, is a 6-foot-2, 270-pound lineman who played for Acadia last season. The 21-year-old finished second in the AUS conference with nine sacks and was named a second-team all-Canadian.

The Douglas, N.B., product also won a silver medal with Canada at the 2011 IFAF World Championship in Austria.

West, 25, comes to Winnipeg via Bishop's University, where the 6-foot-1, 195-pound lined up as a linebacker. The free agent recorded 91 tackles and 2.5 sacks over three seasons at Bishop's.
