Playing in all 18 regular season games and all three postseason games in 2019, he was also named a league all-star for the third consecutive season - the fifth time in his career - as he anchored the left side of an offensive line that was part of the CFL's top rushing units once again.

Bryant, who was named the CFL's Most Outstanding Lineman in 2017 and 2018, has started every game at left tackle since signing in February of 2015, boosting his consecutive games played streak to 101.

The ten-year CFL veteran spent his first five seasons in Calgary, is a two-time Grey Cup champion (Calgary in 2014, Winnipeg 2019) and has been named a CFL All-Star in 2013, 2014, 2017, 2018 and 2019. Bryant has started 156 CFL games, ten playoff games, and three Grey Cup games.

Over that span, he amassed five tackles, an interception for a touchdown, and one pass knockdown.

When are they going to actually update the roster on CFL.CA? It's hard to see exactly where we are with all the transactions going on across the CFL.

The tempo of re-signing or announcing re-signings about potential free agents is quickly increasing.

Good work Walters.  That said I'm waiting to hear about re-signings on a few specific players that IMO are absolute key players.

Alexander, Jeffcoat,, Medlock, Neufeld, and Harris.

EDIT: Jeffcoat re-signed today along with Gray, Gauthier and Antigha.

Bombers sign 2020 CFL Draft selections DB Noah Hallett, K/P Marc Liegghio
By John Hodge  - January 7, 2021

The Winnipeg Blue Bombers have inked two of their top picks from the 2020 CFL Draft in defensive back Noah Hallett and kicker/punter Marc Liegghio.

Hallett
was selected at the bottom of the second round with Winnipeg's first pick in the draft. He was 3DownNation's third-ranked defensive back and No. 23 prospect overall.

The McMaster product is an athletic freak who recorded a 44-inch vertical jump at the 2019 East-West Bowl. He was named a second-team All-Canadian in 2019 at halfback, but should move to safety at the CFL level.

Hallett is the younger brother of Winnipeg Blue Bombers' defensive back Nick Hallett, who recorded 13 special teams tackles and one forced fumble as a rookie in 2019.

Liegghio was a fifth-round selection who holds the all-time U Sports record for most career field goals following a prolific four years at Western University. He was named a U Sports first-team All-Canadian in 2019 as both placekicker and punter.

The native of Woodbridge, Ont. connected on 115-of-137 career field goal attempts (83.9 percent) with a long of 50 yards. He also averaged 47.5 yards per punt in his final year with the Mustangs.
