Blue Bombers add two receivers to roster - January 18, 2024

WINNIPEG, MB., January 18, 2024 – The Winnipeg Blue Bombers today announce the club has signed two American receivers in Kody Case and Tyler Adams.

Case (5-10, 182; Illinois/South Dakota; born: September 11, 1998, in Lake City, IA) joins the Blue Bombers after most recently attending training camp with the Indianapolis Colts as an undrafted free agent last summer.

Case spent 2017-21 at South Dakota, pulling in 82 passes for 1,157 yards and nine touchdowns in 32 games over four seasons, setting a school record with five receiving touchdowns in 2017, while also handling some punt and kickoff returns. He was a medical redshirt in 2018 and did not play during the four-game 2020 COVID season. He played in four games at Illinois after transferring, primarily on special teams as a kick returner.

Adams (6-0, 190; Butler/Harvard; born: August 3, 1998, in Louisville, OH) also attended training camp with the Colts last summer as an undrafted free agent before his release. Adams appeared in 11 games in his one season at Butler, finishing with 39 receptions for 689 yards and five touchdowns and was an All-Pioneer Football League Honorable Mention. Adams began his collegiate career at Harvard, where he appeared in 15 games from 2017-21 and totalled 21 receptions for 305 yards and three TDs, adding another along the ground.
