WINNIPEG - Jason Vega is back with the Winnipeg Blue Bombers.

The six-foot-four, 255-pound defensive end re-signed with Winnipeg on Monday after spending this season in the National Football League.

Vega was with the Bombers in 2011 and '12, appearing in 27 games. He registered 66 tackles, 12 sacks and a fumble recovery and added two tackles and a sack in Winnipeg's Grey Cup loss to B.C. in '11.

Vega, 26, spent this season with the New England Patriots and Dallas Cowboys of the NFL.

"Jason is a character guy with great athletic ability," Bombers' GM Kyle Walters said in a statement. "He is not only a great football player, but a real quality person and will be a welcomed addition to our locker room."
