The Winnipeg Blue Bombers have signed American receiver Keyion Dixon.

The six-foot-three, 185-pound Dixon comes to the Blue Bombers after a four-year career with the Eastern Kentucky University Colonels.

In 2020, Dixon entered the season chosen as a pre-season All-Ohio Valley Conference pick and started all nine games during the COVID-19 shortened season. He led his team in catches and yards in 2019 and 2020 while finding the end zone seven times in that two-year span. Along with catching the ball, Dixon was used as the Colonels primary kick-returner in 2018.
