Blue Bombers re-sign Hefney
Winnipeg, MB (Sports Network) - The Winnipeg Blue Bombers have re-signed defensive back Jonathan Hefney, the team announced on Friday. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
The three-time East Division All-Star is coming off a productive 2012 season with Winnipeg, recording a team-leading 74 tackles to go with a sack, an interception and four fumble recoveries while playing in all 18 games.
"As a key member of our defense, it was important for us to re-sign Jonathan who has been a consistent performer throughout his career in Winnipeg," said vice-president and general manager Joe Mack. "The way Jonathan plays the game, the type of enthusiasm and excitement he brings to the field, certainly rubs off on the rest of his teammates and his experience is one we value as an organization. We look forward to having Jonathan continue his high level of play next season."
Since signing with the club in 2009, Hefney has never missed a game with the Blue Bombers. He has registered 241 tackles, 13 interceptions, two sacks and six fumble recoveries in four seasons with Winnipeg.
