Bombers sign Canadian linebacker Jesse Briggs to contract extension

The Winnipeg Blue Bombers have signed Canadian linebacker Jesse Briggs to a two-year contract.

Briggs was selected 17th overall by Winnipeg in the 2014 CFL draft and has spent the past five seasons with the Bombers.

The native of Kelowna, B.C., has appeared in 87 games, tallying 56 special teams tackles and 18 defensive tackles.

Briggs has recorded double-digit special teams tackles in four of his five CFL seasons.

“Jesse brings many great attributes on special teams and has continued to develop in that role for us,” Blue Bombers general manager Kyle Walters said in a statement. “He works extremely hard, is a quiet player who goes about his business and does so at a very high level.”
