Nearly a month ago, reports emerged that the Patriots had signed CFL defensive lineman Jason Vega.
Today, the Patriots announced the transaction.
The former Winnipeg Blue Bomber joins former Toronto Argonauts defensive lineman Armond Armstead as new members of the Patriots.
The moves expand the pipeline of talent flowing from Canada to the U.S. The Dolphins hit a home run a few years back with Cameron Wake. This year, the Bears found their new head coach in Montreal.
And if these latest moves don’t work out, it will be time to — yes — blame Canada.
