Blue Bombers re-sign defensive backs Nick and Noah Hallett

WINNIPEG, MB., February 1, 2024 - The Winnipeg Blue Bombers today announce the club has agreed to terms on new contracts for Canadian defensive backs Nick and Noah Hallett.

The two brothers were scheduled to become free agents on February 13th. Nick has signed a two-year deal while Noah is on board for one more season.

Nick Hallett (5-11, 202; University of Toronto; born: February 12, 1994, in London, ON) returns to the Blue Bombers for a fifth season after being selected by the club in the seventh round, 61st overall, of the 2019 CFL Draft.

Hallett has not missed any action in his four seasons with the club and has dressed for 68 regular season games and nine playoff contests, including the last four Grey Cups, while becoming a rotational player at safety on defence and regularly contributing on special teams. He led the Blue Bombers with 20 special teams tackles in 2023, which ranked third in the CFL.

Noah Hallett (6-0, 191; McMaster University; born September 20, 1997, in London, ON) returns to the Blue Bombers for a fourth year after missing all last season as he recuperated from a knee injury.

The Blue Bombers' first pick in the 2020th CFL Draft, 18th overall, Hallett dressed for nine games in 2021 (his rookie season) and was limited to just two games in 2022 after twice suffering injuries during the year.

Two years for the healthy Hallet probably is a decent paycheck, Noah on a one year after coming off an injury is more likely a min wage deal, with an opportunity to prove himself worthy of a raise and extension.

Good depth signings, more off the FA page.

10 draft picks this year, though... there is going to be A LOT of competition for NAT backups...
Unabashed positron.  Blue koolaid in my fridge.  I wear my blue sunglasses at night.  Homer, d'oh.

Nick Hallett was our best STs player last season, and can fill in at Safety. This is an excellent signing.

Noah will be in a battle with players like Kelly, MacDougall, and Ford if he returns to the Bombers. 
Don't go through life looking in the rearview mirror.

Yep, having DB size doesn't help his chances.

Very pleased, at both.  No surprise though: I knew at least one would be a priority.  And the other, well we don't really know what he can do yet.  So let's find out!

I wasn't a fan in Nick's rookie year, but he's converted me!
