Warner back in Canadian Football League

After a six-year absence, defensive end Ron Warner is returning to Winnipeg.
The 30-year-old Warner will begin his second stint with the Blue Bobbers in the 2006 season after signing a deal with the CFL club on Tuesday.

Warner first suited up for the Blue Bombers in 2000 when he recorded six sacks and 19 defensive tackles in nine games.
Most recently, he played for the NFL's Washington Redskins in 2004 when he earned 31/2 sacks and one interception in 14 games.
The signing of the six-foot-three-inch, 275-pound Warner should bolster a Winnipeg defence that ranked last in the West Division in 2005 with 558 points allowed.
"We believe the addition of Ron Warner will strengthen an already talented group on the defensive line," Blue Bombers general manager Brendan Taman said in a statement.
"As he has shown throughout his career, Ron has the ability to get to the quarterback and disrupt what opposing offences are trying to do. Adding Ron will make the defensive line a very interesting group to watch in training camp."
