All-star DB T.J. Heath seems unhappy about negotiations with Bombers

Winnipeg cover man T.J. Heath dropped a hint that he isn’t necessarily elated about extension discussions between him and the Bombers.

After signing north of the border in 2016, Heath has been a CFL all-star twice in two seasons. He played 16 games between Toronto and Winnipeg in 2016 making 51 tackles and a league-high-tying seven interceptions. The 30-year-old followed that up with 64 tackles, five interceptions (tied for third-most in the league), returning one for a touchdown and recording one sack. The Bombers acquired Heath as part of the Drew Willy trade with the Argos in September 2016.

Heath is coming off a lower level deal and deservedly wants a raise that he should get or other teams in the CFL will happily give him.

  1. Heath is a good DB and the BB better get it done

      I assume so. One of the very few “adequate-plus” performances on the D last year. Losing Heath would be a step in the wrong direction.

    If I remember correctly Bombers lost O’Dell when they took too long to negotiate a contract, gitter dune.

    Well watch Kyle screw this up too…..he needs to sign randle and heath or the defensive will be at the bottom of the heap again….!!

    He needs to sign Westerman to a lot of teams would like to have him he is a Canadian to

  6. Bombers are something to laugh at per usual

  7. Heath just wants to be paid what a CFL all-star is worth…..Kyle is finding out this off season what other teams learn after a good season……keeping all your stars is impossible with the salary cap limitations. He will need to pick his poison

  8. A good signing for the Alouettes.

  9. Heath to replace Rogers….

  10. Siegmund Walter // January 4, 2018 at 6:10 pm //

    Well Kyle…if you’re still awake somewhere….last year you brought 2 db’s into camp and somehow Richie Hall convinced O’Shea that Roc Charmicheal and Brian Walker were starters….how did that work out for you…??
    You could of had Jeff Healey and Stevie Wonder in the backfield and they would of done a better job…!! Its time to drain the swamp..Kyle Walters and replace with Jim Barker, and Richie Hall also, maybe O’Shea too because he is a friend more than a coach…

  11. I feel sorry for all Gms and fans for that matter because these one year deals will contribute to the demise of the CFL

    Would look great in green.

    I’ve been a TiCat fan since 1953 when we beat the Bonbers in the Grey Cup. Sadly, more often than not, the Bud Grant Bombers waffled my Cats . Today’s Bombers are a well run team that can compete every year with Walters and O’Shea in charge. Bomber fans have a good thing going in the Peg and they should laugh at critics who state the Bombers “should of” or “could of” done something . If you can’t be accurate, at least be articulate.

  14. TJ deserves a good raise. Bombers should not be cheap with a 2 time All-Star. Either they find the money to do it or another team will. Simple as that.
