WINNIPEG — The Winnipeg Blue Bombers added some depth to the middle of their defence on Tuesday, signing American linebacker Micah Awe to a two-year contract.

Awe joins another former Argonaut in Winnipeg, after the Bombers signed linebacker Tobi Antigha to a one-year deal last week.

The six-foot, 225-pound Texas Tech alum is a three-year Canadian Football League veteran with 35 games played with BC and Toronto. Over that span, he’s recorded 129 defensive tackles, 25 special teams tackles, one sack, one interception and two forced fumbles.

Awe played ten games for the Argonauts last season, registering 44 defensive tackles, six tackles on special teams, one sack and one interception.

The Bombers also announced on Tuesday that they’d signed a pair of Americans, in linebacker Jontrell Rocquemore and defensive back Josh Miller. Rocquemore played at Utah State and spent time with the Cleveland Browns in 2019. Miller played his college football at Ball State and spent time with the Detroit Lions last season. Both players are 23.
