Blue Bombers extend WRs Poblah, Watson
Winnipeg, MB (Sports Network) - The Winnipeg Blue Bombers signed wide receivers Kito Poblah and Cory Watson to contract extensions on Wednesday.
As per team policy, terms of the deals were not disclosed.
"We are very pleased to lock up, what we feel, are two valuable Canadian players in our league," said vice president and general manager Joe Mack. "Cory has shown tremendous progression from year one to year two, and we are looking forward to watching him take his game to the next level in 2012. With Kito, he had some unfortunate injuries nag him for a lot of 2011, but in the short duration in which he did play, we were very pleased."
Watson, Winnipeg's 2010 top draft pick, caught 69 passes for 793 yards and one touchdown last season.
Taken in the 2011 supplemental draft, Poblah played in three games last year and tallied 10 receptions for 99 yards.
