‘Strong indications’ Riders Nic Demski headed to the Bombers in free agency: report

According to Winnipeg-based broadcaster Darrin Bauming, the Blue Bombers are likely to sign Saskatchewan Roughriders receiver Nic Demski when he becomes a free agent next Tuesday.

The 24-year-old Demski has 26 starts in three seasons with the Riders, who drafted him with the sixth overall pick in 2015.

Demski looked poised for a breakout year in 2017 before injuries forced him to miss the last nine games and he was limited to 19 catches for 222 yards. Still, he is considered one of the top Canadian talents on the free agent market.
