The Winnipeg Blue Bombers have signed quarterback Kevin Anderson, per 3DownNation’s Justin Dunk and John Hodge.
Anderson played at Fordham University for four seasons, throwing for 7,663 yards and 73 touchdowns. He recently spent time with the AAF’s Orlando Apollos and participated in Winnipeg’s rookie camp prior to the season.
Winnipeg has an opening on the roster for a QB because Matt Nichols suffered a shoulder injury two weeks ago and landed on the six-game injured list.
General manager Kyle Walters reached out to retired veteran passer Kevin Glenn, but he elected to stay retired. Chris Streveler, Winnipeg’s interim starter, tossed for just 89 yards in last week’s victory over Edmonton. Starting is a golden opportunity for Streveler as the pending free agent has the chance to earn a large future pay day.
The Bombers (8-2) have the best record in the West Division. With Streveler and CFL rookie Sean McGuire the only other quarterbacks on the roster, the Bombers needed to add a third passer until Nichols is healthy.
