Blue Bombers add two to roster

WINNIPEG, MB., May 4, 2022 - The Winnipeg Blue Bombers today announce the club has signed American defensive end Inoke Moala and 2021 CFL Draft pick, defensive back Patrice Rene.

Moala (6-4, 250, Indiana State; born: March 23, 1987 in Mishawaka, IND) joins the Blue Bombers after an impressive college career with the Indiana State Sycamores. Moala became an immediate contributor by adding value to special teams during his freshman year before seeing action on the defensive side of the ball. During his time at Indiana State, Moala recorded 122 total tackles, 15 sacks, and a team-high 8 passes defensed. The defensive end was named to the 2021 MVFC First Team All-Conference Selection. 

Rene (6-2, 208, Rutgers, November 19, 1997, in Ottawa, ON) was originally selected 21st overall  by Winnipeg in the 2021 CFL Draft. Rene spent his senior season of 2021 at Rutgers, after the first five collegiate years of his career at North Carolina. In 2021, he played in five games at Rutgers, with two starts at corner, recording eight tackles. Rene played in 10 of the Tar Heels' games in 2020 - including the Orange Bowl against Texas A&M - totalling 28 tackles, two tackles for loss, four pass breakups, and a forced fumble.

Across 45 career games with North Carolina, Rene posted 104 tackles, four tackles for loss, two interceptions, 14 pass defences, a forced fumble, and a fumble recovery.

1987?

That's obviously a typo, right?
