BOMBERS INK LONG SNAPPER REMPEL

WINNIPEG - The Winnipeg Blue Bombers have signed national long snapper Chad Rempel to a two-year contract, the team announced Wednesday.

Rempel was scheduled to become a free agent next month.

The 2019 season will be Rempel's fifth with Winnipeg after signing as a free agent prior to the 2015 campaign. Rempel returns to work with kicker Justin Medlock, who has been named the team?s Most Outstanding Special Teams Player for three consecutive seasons. He has appeared in all 72 regular season games and four postseason contests as a Bomber.

"Chad brings an extreme wealth of special teams knowledge to the field, locker room and meeting rooms,? said General Manager Kyle Walters. "Most importantly, he is as good as anybody in our league at what he does and is a big piece of our kicking game."

Rempel has played 197 career regular season CFL games, 12 playoff games and one Grey Cup. The long snapper started his career with Winnipeg in 2005 and moved on to play seven seasons for Toronto and one for Hamilton (2008) before spending the 2013 season with the Chicago Bears. He returned to the CFL for the last half of the 2014 season with Saskatchewan. The 2019 season will be Rempel's 15th in the CFL.

Great to see the foot soldiers lining up to get back on the bus for another run.

Must see video on Chad's twitter page.

Absolutely agree about the foot-soldiers.  A team can have all the stars it wants but without those solid, reliable special teamers and backups, things can get tough.  These unheralded players make the job so much easier for the big names (who are also necessary, of course)
We should not be surprised that Miller, Walters and O'Shea place so much emphasis on this part of the team since Miller and Walters were both in that mold themselves and O'Shea was a top special teamer in addition to being a starter on D. I, for one, am happy to see the team being built on these solid foundations.

Hopefully these signing are the warm up what will be the main workout with Biggie and JSK and a dynamic kick returner.

Great signing. I kind of figured that once we had Medlock Rempel wouldn't be far behind.

Have to wonder if these were all done, and they are just rolling them out one by one to keep the Bombers in the news...

We've locked down more players than anyone so far...  Wink

MTL  - 3
OTT - 7
TOR - 4
HAM - 2
WPG - 8
SSK - 3
CGY - 1  (5 released to NFL opportunities)
EDM - 0 (4 released to NFL opportunities)
BC - 2

We also started with the least potential free agents so this has been good work so far.

We haven't signed a single core player yet though, unless you want to count Medlock.

Edit: Forgot about Bryant and Hardrick...my bad.

Yes, I would say Medlock is a core player.

Rempel, my favorite kicking-crew player.  Great news.  Keep 'em coming Walters!
