Former Most Outstanding Rookie Tristan Okpalaugo agrees to terms with Bombers

Defensive end Tristan Okpalaugo has agreed to sign with the Winnipeg Blue Bombers, per sources.

He chose Winnipeg over a return to Toronto, those teams were his final two.

The 27-year-old played two seasons with the Argonauts registering 23 sacks in 36 games. He earned East Division Most Outstanding Rookie honours in 2014 after registering 12 sacks. The six-foot-six, 250-pounder signed with the Arizona Cardinals last February but injured his hamstring in the final pre-season game and was released in September.

Okpalaugo provides a legitimate pass rusher to pair with Canadian Jamaal Westerman who finished second in the league with 17 sacks last season on his way to being named a CFL all-star.
