Chris Garrett helped guide the Bombers to the 2011 Grey Cup, racking up a whopping 190 rushing yards in the East Final victory over the Hamilton Tiger-Cats.

It ended up being his final moment of glory in Blue and Gold, as he was one of three players the Bombers released on Wednesday.

Garrett didn’t do much in the Grey Cup loss to the B.C. Lions, and the following spring, just three days before the start of the regular season, the import running back tore his Achilles tendon.
