BRADENTON, FLA. - Optimism abounds this time of year for every CFL team, but if it’s needed most anywhere, it’s in Winnipeg.

And new Bombers head coach Mike O’Shea was beaming this morning at IMG Academy after the team wrapped up its first Florida mini-camp with a 90-minute practice. O’Shea said the three days of workouts were very productive and the talent general manager Kyle Walters assembled should help the Bombers improve on their 3-15 mark of a season ago.

“It exceeded the expectations,” O’Shea said. “The talent level that was brought in here by Kyle and his staff really blew the coaches away. It’s exciting to see guys that are able to work that hard in this short a time frame. Overall, it was a great success.

“... What we just did was vital for this organization, and we’ll reap the rewards for it.”
