The Winnipeg Blue Bombers have picked up international linebacker Abraham Kromah from the Hamilton Tiger-Cats in exchange for future considerations.

Kromah, 25, spent his first two CFL seasons with the Saskatchewan Roughriders.

He has a record of 39 defensive tackles, five special teams tackles, one sack and one fumble recovery.

He signed in Hamilton in the off-season, but has spent the first three weeks of this season on the one-game injured list, where he has been placed by the Bombers.

The six-foot, 227-pound linebacker played at Duke and was born in Staten Island, N.Y.
