WINNIPEG, MB - Big news out of Bomber land today. The team has re-signed defensive back Maurice Leggett, a pending free agent, to a one-year deal.
“Maurice Leggett has shown the ability to change games defensively for us for a number of seasons now,” said General Manager Kyle Walters. “His ability to simply make plays is evident every time he steps on the field, and his athleticism and versatility is important for us. This is a key piece of our roster we were able to re-sign today, and we’re very pleased about that.”
Leggett has been a force on the Bombers. He started 13 games in 2017, recording 50 defensive tackles, three sacks, three interceptions, including one returned for a touchdown, three forced fumbles and one punt return touchdown.
This will be the fifth season for Leggett in Blue and Gold.
