WINNIPEG - One of the most prolific receivers in Winnipeg Blue Bombers history announced his retirement this morning.

Slotback Terrence Edwards, 34, has called it a career after seven years with the Blue and Gold and nine in the CFL.

The Bombers landed Edwards’ replacement last week when they signed free agent receiver Nick Moore, who was third in CFL receiving yards last season with the B.C. Lions.

But Edwards said he wasn’t pushed out the door.

“The team didn’t call me and say they were going to release me,” he said during an afternoon conference call with reporters. “I didn’t get any indication that was the plan.”
