Winnipeg Blue Bombers Signs QB Darian Durant


WINNIPEG, MB. – Quarterback, Darian Durant, will be wearing blue and gold this season after the Winnipeg Blue Bombers signed him to a one-year contract.

Durant, who is a 12-year CFL veteran, was with the Montreal Alouettes last season and has spent time with Saskatchewan. During his career he has posted 31,740 yards and 167 touchdowns in 174 games (128 starts). Durant is currently 14th all-time in CFL passing yards.

“One of our objectives this offseason was to solidify depth at the quarterback position behind Matt Nichols,” said General Manager Kyle Walters. “Not only is Darian a veteran player in our league, but he brings a wealth of experience to our quarterback room and our locker room. In many facets, it’s a great addition for us, and we welcome Darian to the Bomber organization.”

Durant led the Riders to three Grey Cup appearances (2009, 2010 and 2013), winning the 101st Grey Cup in 2013.
