Bombers release DB Bruce Johnson

Winnipeg has cut American defensive back Bruce Johnson.

The 29-year-old did not dress in a game for the Bombers this season. Johnson played in 47 games making 141 tackles, three interceptions and forced three fumbles.

Last year Johnson was suspended for two games after testing positive for the recreational drug methylenedioxyamphetamine, otherwise known as MDA or “Sally.”


10 Comments on Bombers release DB Bruce Johnson

  1. Must be because we haven’t been giving up many passing yards with the new guys. For the love of god, you can’t tell me he’s not better then Roc, Alexander or Walker.Next step should be to fire Hall, if the don’t improve the pass defence.

  2. It’s about time. Never seen anyone take so many penalties. What took them so long to find a replacement?

    • Hasn’t taken a single one this year! At least he wasn’t giving up a bunch of TDs lime Carmichael has.

    • Are you sure you know what your talking about. He wasn’t sat down, and was on the 6 Game IR.Your comment make zero sense. You think Carmichael has played well. I guess not many penalties, but a bunch of TDs

      • He’s been ready to go for weeks but hasn’t been put into the line-up because he’s not as good as the guys playing. Carmichael, by the way, played very well last game and will only get better with experience. Johnson hasn’t played well the last two years and that’s why they’ve been looking to replace him. You should watch the games before you make dumb comments.

  3. Bomber secondary still a work in progress but surprise cut for sure.

    Making room for the NFL cuts coming down

  5. They didn’t activate him off the 6 game
    1) Salary added to cap
    2) They only get to activate so many off the 6 game IR.
    3) They are said to be using that for Dressler.
    I’m not saying he’s great, but please don’t insult me by saying he’s better then Carmichael.
    This was done solely as a cap move.

    Another head scratcher from the Bombers camp. I guess Carmicheal is cheaper and had a good game so he’s the man.
