The Winnipeg Blue Bombers have brought back a player who had a cup of coffee with the club three years ago.

The Bombers announced they’ve signed linebacker Nick Temple on Wednesday.

Temple, 26, spent time with the blue and gold during the 2016 season. He only appeared in a single regular season game, but spent much of the season on the practice roster before getting released in September.
