Winnipeg Blue Bombers extend DB Bruce Johnson’s contract

WINNIPEG — The Winnipeg Blue Bombers have locked up defensive back Bruce Johnson for three more seasons.

Johnson was set to become a free agent in February. His contract extension will keep him in Winnipeg through 2018.

The import has started all 28 games he has played in since joining the Bombers in 2014. During that time, Johnson racked up 91 defensive tackles, two interceptions and a fumble recovery.

“Bruce is a very key part of our defensive secondary,” said Bombers general manager Kyle Walters. “He’s been extremely steady and reliable for us since he first stepped on the field last season. It was important for us to lock up a key piece of our defense moving forward and we’re pleased Bruce also felt the desire to remain a Blue Bomber.”
