Bombers add DB Alexander

Winnipeg, MB ( - The Winnipeg Blue Bombers have signed defensive back Donovan Alexander.

Alexander spent the past three seasons with Edmonton, registering 121 tackles with seven interceptions in 51 regular-season games and three playoff games.

The Winnipeg native played in back-to-back Grey Cup games in 2009 and '10 with Saskatchewan.

"Donovan is a veteran, Canadian player, who we feel can compete for a starting spot in our secondary," said Bombers general manager Kyle Walters in a statement Tuesday. "We are very pleased to add not only a talented football player, but also someone who grew up in Winnipeg and understands the importance of Blue Bomber football in our community. It was a great fit for both parties."

Alexander was originally selected by Montreal in the third round of the 2007 draft.
