Bombers pick up import linebacker Abraham Kromah from Hamilton Tiger-Cats

WINNIPEG - 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 offseason 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.
