The Winnipeg Blue Bombers today have signed their fifth-round selection from the 2021 CFL Draft, running back Kyle Borsa.

The six-foot, 200-pound back was drafted 39th overall earlier this month after spending his entire U SPORTS career with his hometown Regina Rams.

During his time with the program, the back posted 2,195 all-purpose yards and seven touchdowns. In his first year with the program, Borsa finished with 855 all-purpose yards, serving as the Rams’ primary option on kick-off and punt returns.

During the 2018 campaign, Borsa played in eight games, starting in three of those contests. Despite that, he managed to post 613 yards and six majors on 96 carries.

That was the last time Borsa took the field, as he was suspended for the 2019 season after testing positive for a banned substance. The 2020 U Sports season was canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
