"... sources say the Bombers also attempted to trade for Mike Bradwell, who is Canadian, of the Toronto Argonauts even before the Franklin injury and those discussions may heat up again. Bradwell pulled in three passes for 77 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's loss to the Saskatchewan Roughriders and has stepped up admirably for the Boatmen with Andre Talbot nursing a bad back.For those scoring at home, the injury to a Windsor grad affected players from McMaster, Acadia and Simon Fraser, since Aaron Hargreaves is in Winnipeg's employ.
The Bombers were also said to be sniffing around about the availability of Matt Carter, who left the B.C. Lions for personal reasons but is apparently close to signing with the Hamilton Tiger-Cats."
