WINNIPEG — The Winnipeg Blue Bombers signed Canadian kicker Tyler Crapigna on Tuesday.

Crapigna, of Ottawa, was recently released by the Montreal Alouettes.

The former McMaster Marauder has made 98-of-115 career field-goal attempts in the CFL (85.2 per cent).

Crapigna, 28, was originally drafted by the Calgary Stampeders in 2014. He was with Saskatchewan from 2015 to 2018 before spending the 2019 campaign with Toronto.

The Argos dealt Crapigna to Montreal in 2020, as part of a deal that sent Boris Bede to Toronto.
