Bombers release Turner, Denmark

Hey there, time traveller!
This article was published 22/3/2016 (944 days ago), so information in it may no longer be current.

A busy — and expensive — foray into free agency has cost two long-standing Winnipeg Blue Bombers their jobs.

The club announced Tuesday the release of defensive tackle Bryant Turner and receiver Clarence Denmark, this coming after a winter which has seen the Bombers add the likes of Andrew Harris, Justin Medlock, Keith Shologan, Weston Dressler, Ryan Smith and Euclid Cummings.

“These are the types of difficult decisions that must be made throughout the offseason,” Bombers GM Kyle Walters said in a statement. “Both Bryant and Clarence have done great things for this organization both on and off the field for a long time now. The Winnipeg Blue Bombers sincerely thank both men for the dedication, hard work and effort they put forth. We wish them the very best moving forward.”

Both Denmark and Turner originally signed with the club in 2011.

"These are the types of difficult decisions that must be made throughout the offseason," Bombers GM Kyle Walters said in a statement. "Both Bryant and Clarence have done great things for this organization both on and off the field for a long time now. The Winnipeg Blue Bombers sincerely thank both men for the dedication, hard work and effort they put forth. We wish them the very best moving forward."

Both Denmark and Turner originally signed with the club in 2011.

Earlier in the day, the Bombers announced that they’ve added a couple of import defenders to the roster.

Defensive back Johnny Patrick (5-11, 190 lbs., Louisville) was a third-round draft pick of the New Orleans Saints back in 2011 and he has three seasons in the NFL, registering 62 tackles, 1.5 sacks, one interception and one forced fumble.

Defensive end Jordan Stanton (6-4, 260 lbs., James Madison) served time on the practice roster of the New York Giants after signing as a free agent in 2014.
