Jabari Arthur was a quarterback when he played high school ball in Montreal, but he was converted to receiver when he went to Akron.

Bombers head coach Paul LaPolice wasn't afraid to throw a few wrinkles into Saskatchewan's playbook last season, so Arthur could always be a threat to throw.

"Last year the (Saskatchewan) offence was high-flying, a lot of different stuff, a lot of different formations," he said. "I'm expecting this offence to be fun. It'll be high-flying and high-powered, and I'm really looking forward to being a part of it."

MAKING MOVES: The Bombers have lost a free agent for the first time this off-season.

Canadian safety Steven Holness, who spent the past two seasons with the Bombers, has signed with his hometown Montreal Alouettes.

Holness played only one game last year due to a shoulder injury, but he made 10 special teams tackles in 18 games during his rookie season of 2008.

Meanwhile, the Edmonton Eskimos continued their secondary overhaul on Tuesday when they signed defensive back Lawrence Gordon, whom the Hamilton Tiger-Cats released earlier this off-season.

LET YOUR VOICE BE HEARD: The Winnipeg Football Club will conduct its annual fan forum on Wednesday, April 7, at the Winnipeg Sun Centre.

The franchise will release its financial details from the 2009 season and preview the 2010 campaign.

Bomber players, coaches, staff, dance team members and mascots will be in attendance, and fans will be able to ask questions.

The doors open at 6:30 p.m., and the proceedings begin at 7 o'clock.
