The Winnipeg Blue Bombers have signed non-import defensive back Steven Holness, according to the Ottawa Citizen.

Holness, a 5-foot-11, 190-pound Montreal native, spent the past four seasons with the University of Ottawa Gee-Gees.

Holness also competed in track at the university, where he posted a team-best 4.45 seconds in the 40-yard dash. His speed coach is former Olympian Glenroy Gilbert.

Holness had 17 tackles and two sacks in seven games for the Gee-Gees last season, a year after recording 10 tackles, two sacks and five pass breakups in only four contests.
