WINNIPEG — The Winnipeg Blue Bombers have made 11 cuts following their first pre-season game, including quarterback Austin Apodaca, linebacker George Stone and defensive back Terrence Frederick, the team announced Monday.
Apodaca, 23, was brought in for a look ahead of this year’s training camp and threw for 15 yards on 2-of-6 passing in the Bombers’ pre-season tie with Saskatchewan on Saturday.
Stone, 23, was considered to be in the running for the middle linebacker spot, a contentious training camp battle for the team going into camp. Stone played on Saturday but failed to record a tackle at new Mosaic Stadium.
Perhaps the most surprising of the roster moves is the release of Terrence Frederick. Frederick started at corner on Saturday and also made nine starts a season ago, logging 33 defensive tackles, a sack and an interception.
The full list of players let go is as follows:
International receiver Darrin Peterson
International receiver TJ Lowder
International receiver Quinshad Davis
International receiver Larry Raper
International quarterback Austin Apodaca
International offensive lineman Kodi Kieler
International defensive lineman Lawrence Virgil
International defensive lineman Caleb Bostic
