Jesse Lumsden will not be joining the Winnipeg Blue Bombers.

The team announced on Thursday morning that the free agent Canadian running back has informed it that he will be pursuing other interests.

Lumsden, a former first-round draft pick who has had NFL tryouts, hasn’t played since last July, when he was a member of the Edmonton Eskimos. He suffered a shoulder injury in the 2009 season-opener against the Bombers and hasn’t played since.

The Calgary Stampeders are also interested in Lumsden.
