WINNIPEG - Chris Randle went from the Calgary Stampeders, where they win all the time, to the Winnipeg Blue Bombers, where they don't win all the time, and he did so willingly.
Randle admitted after practice today that some people question his sanity.
"Some people do. Some people really do. I got it a couple times," the cornerback said. "But from what I know and how I got approached and how I talked to this organization, I don't see a difference."
The Bombers acquired Randle from the Calgary Stampeders the day before free agency began and in exchange swapped third-round picks. The Bombers then quickly signed the former Utah State cornerback to a contract that will pay him an average of $125,000 per season over the next two years.
Obviously big things are expected out of the man who will replace Jovon Johnson, the former CFL defensive player of the year, and Randle believes he will be part of something big in Winnipeg this season.
