The Winnipeg Blue Bombers have brought back Canadian defensive back Noah Hallett, who was released at the start of training camp after he failed his physical.

The 26-year-old was a second-round pick in the 2020 CFL Draft out of McMaster University but has dressed for only five career games due to injury, recording one defensive tackle and six special teams tackles. He suffered a serious knee injury late during the 2021 season and tore his ACL in 2022.

Hallett is the younger brother of veteran Blue Bombers’ defensive back Nick Hallett, who was a seventh-round pick in the 2019 CFL Draft out of the University of Toronto. He has made 31 defensive tackles, 58 special teams tackles, three forced fumbles, and one interceptions over 50 career games.

The Blue Bombers (12-4) will host the Edmonton Elks (4-13) on Saturday, Oct. 21 with kickoff slated for 7:00 p.m. EDT. Winnipeg can clinch first place in the West Division with a win or a B.C. Lions loss.
