Bombers trade for experienced Canadian Football League Quarterback

The Blue Bombers will be well-armed when training camp opens next month with the addition of quarterback Spergon Wynn.
Wynn, 26, was acquired today in a trade with the B.C. Lions that saw the Bombers send a conditional pick in the 2006 CFL Draft to their western counterparts.
He will join incumbent QBs Kevin Glenn, Stanley Jackson and Tee Martin when camp begins May 28.
"Spergon brings CFL experience, NFL experience and NFL Europe experience to the table," Bombers head coach Jim Daley said.
"He played very effectively with B.C. the last few seasons, including a playoff start in 2003. We think he'll be a great addition to our offence and our team."
Wynn, 6-foot-3 and 226 pounds, dressed for 15 games during the 2004 season, throwing for 268 yards on 21 completions with the Leos. He dressed for all 18 regular season games in 2003, including one start, going 46-for-65 and 626 yards and four TDs.
Prior to joining the Lions, Wynn was on the Minnesota Vikings roster in 2002 but did not see any game action. He started two games for the Vikes in 2001 following a trade from the Cleveland Browns, including a 24-of-39 effort against the Green Bay Packers that saw him complete a 47-yard TD pass to tight end Byron Chamberlain.
Wynn was a seventh round pick of Cleveland in the 2000 NFL draft. He appeared in seven games for the Browns that season, including one start, and completed 22 of 55 passes for 167 yards and one interception.
He had one of his best pro seasons as a member of the Amsterdam Admirals of NFL Europe in 2001. He completed a league-high 193 passes on 337 attempts for 2,041 yards and 14 TDs. He also rushed for 110 yards.
A native of Houston, Wynn was an economics major at Southwest Texas State, where he still ranks among the school's best ever passes with 3,497 yards.
