2012 Highlights: Cauchy Muamba

CFL.ca Staff

WINNIPEG -- It will be a brother act in Winnipeg in 2013.

Tuesday, the Bombers announced the signing of free agent defensive back Cauchy Muamba - brother of linebacker Henoc - to a contract.

Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
“We are very pleased to lock up a Canadian player with Cauchy’s ability and potential. We feel he will add immediate depth to our roster and also an added locker room presence with his brother Henoc already in our organization and a big part of our defence,” said Vice-President and General Manager Joe Mack.
Muamba was originally drafted 34th overall by the B.C. Lions in the 2010 CFL Draft.

His breakout season came in 2012 – his third in the CFL – when he became the Lions’ starting safety, seeing action in 17 of 18 regular season games as well as the Western Final. He finished the year with three pass knockdowns, one forced fumble and 41 tackles to rank sixth on the club, two interceptions, while adding nine more tackles on special teams.

These are two young Homegrowns who have a big upside. Good move, Bombers!! Two Muambas are better than one. Tim Burke's Bomber D will be strong.

Was a bit surprised that he wasn't either re-signed by BC or picked up sooner. Now he and his brother can play together rather than competing against each other!

The Lions will regret letting this guy go. I'm sorry the Als didn't sign him.
