Bombers let former Canadian Football League All-Star go

Former CFL all-star cornerback Eric Carter is looking for a new team.
The Winnipeg Blue Bombers released the 36-year-old veteran on Friday after one season with the club to make room for free agent additions William Fields and Mesene Lousidor and promising young players Tim Carter and Justin Coleman.

"Right now, numbers wise, you're only allowed 68 players (in training camp that starts later this month) and we're getting to a point where there's a couple of good young people we've signed who we think need a shot at making the team," said Blue Bombers coach Jim Daley.
Carter led the team last season with three interceptions and 81 return yards, despite missing six games due to injury.
Carter, a three-time CFL all-star, played in 160 CFL regular-season games over 10 seasons with the Hamilton Tiger-Cats, B.C. Lions and the Blue Bombers.
He signed with Winnipeg as a free agent last off-season.
