He Wore It Well: Angelo Snipes, LB, 1996

The Canadian Football League’s American expansion experiment had ended when the Blue Bombers drafted Angelo Snipes with their first pick in the 1996 dispersal draft from the Birmingham Barracudas.

Snipes was one of the league’s dominant pass rushers at the time, having registered 20 sacks with the Ottawa Rough Riders in 1992, 14 with B.C. in ’93, 11 with B.C. in ’94 and then 17 with Birmingham in their one season of existence.

He did the same for the Bombers, racking up 15 sacks – tied for the league lead with Montreal’s Grant Carter – while being named a CFL All-Star. That was his last season in the CFL. His career numbers are superb: 82 sacks in 120 games.
