WINNIPEG, MB., February 13, 2018 - The Winnipeg Blue Bombers today announce the club has signed international defensive back Chandler Fenner. Fenner has spent the past two seasons with the BC Lions.

Fenner (6-1, 190, Holy Cross, July 6, 1990 in Virginia Beach, VA)  signed as a free agent with BC during the 2016 season. He has played in 26 games over his two years with the Lions (including all 18 last season), and recorded 105 defensive tackles, 32 special teams tackles, one sack, one interception, and one forced fumble.

Prior to joining the BC Lions, Fenner spent time in the NFL with Kansas City, Seattle, and the New York Giants, winning a Super Bowl while on the reserve with Seattle and playing in 11 games with the Giants in 2014.

Big loss for #BCLions. He will help a #Bombers secondary that gave up far too many yards. @CFLonTSNFarhan Lalji added,

Good signing. If our scouts can hit on even one defensive back this year it could be a big help. I'm really liking the moves Walters has made today! It's being reported as a two-year deal which is even better.

Excellent player. Might have preferred Purifoy but nevertheless a great addition. Also one of the best ST players an added bonus.

@BCLionsDen: Hearing Fenner got 60k more from the #Bombers than what the Lions were offering. #BCLions #CFLFA

Was Fenner coming off his rookie contract?  I can understand Heath getting a $60,000 boost from that scenario.

Yes he was.  But that's $60k more than what BC was offering, not $60k more than his rookie contract.

Have we heard how much Purifoy got in Ottawa?  Would be an interesting comparison ...

I like that he signed for 2 years, and the few others that did as well, it will really help create much needed stability at least into 2019.
