WINNIPEG - The Winnipeg Blue Bombers have locked up defensive back Korey Banks through the 2015 season.

The 10-year veteran was recently acquired by the Blue Bombers from the B.C. Lions and figures to bring plenty of leadership, along with a winning pedigree as a two-time Grey Cup winner.

Terms of the contract extension were not disclosed.

Banks, a five-time CFL All-star, had 46 tackles, one sack, two interceptions and two fumble recoveries for the Lions last season.
