WINNIPEG -- The Winnipeg Blue Bombers are excited to announce that they have signed the third overall pick from this year’s CFL Draft, offensive lineman Tyson Pencer. 



Pencer will be on the field when rookie camp opens this afternoon.

 “We are very happy to have Tyson locked up and are looking forward to seeing him on the field this afternoon,” said Vice-President and General Manager, Joe Mack.  “Tyson is a gifted athlete who we are counting on to be a big piece of the puzzle for many years.”

Pencer (6-8, 330, Washington State, DOB: February 10, 1989 in North Delta, British Columbia) spent two years with the Washington State Cougars and made a number of starts at tackle before leaving for the Okanagan Sun in 2011. 

He was one of 14 Cougar freshmen to start a game in 2009, appearing in seven contests that season while starting four at left tackle.
