Bombers re-sign Weston Dressler

The Bombers have agreed to terms with international slotback Weston Dressler on a one-year contract. Dressler was set to become a free agent in February.

Dressler just completed his tenth CFL season (second with Winnipeg), and recorded 51 receptions for 651 yards and three touchdowns in 11 games. Over two seasons with the Bombers, he has registered 131 receptions for 1,694 yards and five touchdowns.

“Weston Dressler brings so much to our organization in addition to his productivity on the field,” said Blue Bombers general manager Kyle Walters. “Every week he is out on the field, he is a threat in so many facets of the game and brings invaluable experience and leadership to our locker room.”

Prior to joining the Bombers, Dressler spent eight seasons with Saskatchewan, recording 7,797 yards on 539 receptions with 50 touchdowns. With his 51 receptions in 2017, Dressler has now recorded 50 or more catches in nine out of his ten CFL seasons.

  2. Good on the Bombers. I wish Weston was still a Roughrider and Chris Jones was in Winnipeg.

    On the back half of the career, but if the guy lost a step or two he’s still be productive when he’s healthy. Need a big/tall productive receiver!
    I don’t think we see Denmark back. Full props to that man!

  4. I don’t think he’s lost anything. This is who he always was. He’s a decent receiver but he was always waaaay over hyped in Sask, and overpaid as well. IMO, he was always a borderline top 10 receiver in the league, and never a true top tier guy.

  5. I hope the Bombers didn’t pay too much for this guy’s “locker room presence” because his recurring presence on the IR is a concern.

    Dressler looks WAY better in blue & gold then he never did in (yuck) green and white!!!!!! Thanks to the Rider fans for their kind endorsement.

    I’m assuming he took a pay cut to come back
    Hope he can stay healthy, not overly excited about this

    The problem in Riderville was he was the ‘face of the franchise’.
    That’s a title Chris Jones wants.
