Montreal acquires Adarius Bowman in trade with Bombers

MONTREAL – The Montreal Alouettes have acquired receiver Adarius Bowman from the Winnipeg Blue Bombers for a conditional eighth round draft choice in the 2019 CFL Draft, it was announced on Monday.

Bowman signed a one-year deal with the Winnipeg Blue Bombers this off-season after his release from the Edmonton Eskimos, marking his second stint with the blue and gold. He played in all six regular season games with the Bombers this year, hauling in just nine receptions for 95 yards and no touchdowns.

Before joining the Blue Bombers, the 33-year-old spent the past seven seasons in Edmonton, consistently being one of the league’s most dangerous receivers. He recorded over 1,000 yards receiving in four of those seven seasons, including leading the CFL in yardage (1,761), receptions (120) and targets (168) in 2016. The pass-catcher also spent time with the Saskatchewan Roughriders in 2008 and Blue Bombers in 2009 and 2010.

Bowman was named a CFL and West Division All-Star from 2014-2016 and won a Grey Cup with the Eskimos in 2015. He was also awarded the Tom Pate Memorial Award in 2017.
