Blue Bombers release defensive end Jonathan Kongbo to pursue NFL opportunities

WINNIPEG, MB., December 5, 2019 – The Winnipeg Blue Bombers today announce the club has released defensive end Jonathan Kongbo in order for him to further pursue NFL opportunities.

Blue Bombers General Manager Kyle Walters statement:
“When we selected Jonathan in last year’s CFL Draft, he chose to sign with our organization rather than wait a season to continue training. This agreement came with the understanding that if he received any NFL interest, we would work with him to help him pursue those interests. Jonathan is a great young man and deserves the opportunity to explore all avenues in his career. We wish him the best and certainly will welcome his return if nothing comes to fruition in this regard.”
