The Indianapolis Colts add another Canadian to their linebacking corps


The last time the Colts looked north to Canada they found Jerrell Freeman, who has now led the team in tackles for the last two seasons. Yesterday the Colts looked to strike gold again when they signed linebacker Henoc Muamba of the Winnipeg Blue Bombers.

Just recently Muamba was released by the Blue Bombers so that he could pursue his career in the NFL. Before the Colts signed the Canadian-transfer, he also had workouts with the Ravens and Patriots.

Muamba was the first overall selection in the 2011 CFL draft and has since developed into one of the best players in the league.  Last season he finished with 106 tackles, second in the CFL, and proved to be an extremely effective special teams player.

Muamba hopes to join other successful former-CFL players in the NFL like Freeman, Brandon Browner and Cameron Wake. If the transition proves to be smooth, than the Colts would end up with a unique all-Canadian inside linebacker duo.
