Bombers and Als swap Canadian football League players

The Winnipeg Blue Bombers acquired Canadian slotback O'Neil Wilson from the Montreal Alouettes for linebacker Cory Huclack on Friday.
Wilson, a 29-year-old from Toronto, made 46 catches for 528 yards in 17 games with the Als last season. Both totals ranked fourth among Montreal receivers.
The Blue Bombers see bigger things for him, describing O'Neil as a "starting-calibre" receiver.
"O'Neil Wilson is a quality, non-import player who is just coming into his own as a receiver," Bombers GM Brendan Taman said in a release. "His addition to our receiving corps will make us significantly better."
Huclack, a 23-year-old from Winnipeg, was the Canada West defensive player of the year for the Manitoba Bisons in 2006.
The six-foot, 210-pounder led the conference with 47 defensive tackles and added two sacks, two interceptions, a forced fumble and a knockdown.
He signed with the Blue Bombers before he was traded.
