The Winnipeg Blue Bombers have signed Canadian linebacker Nakas Onyeka.

Onyeka signed with the Riders in May 2020 but was released this past week.

The Brampton native was selected in the fifth round of the 2017 CFL Draft by the Toronto Argonauts and helped the club win the Grey Cup in his rookie year.

He has recorded 44 tackles, two sacks and one forced fumble in 36 career CFL games.
