Nick Moore, one of the top free agents on the market, has signed with the Winnipeg Blue Bombers.

Moore's contract is for two years and he will make up to $185,000 per season, according to TSN's Farhan Lalji.

The slotback was at one point thought to be heading to the NFL after a breakout year with the BC Lions.

"Nick proved his worth as one of the best receivers in our league last season," said general manager Kyle Walters. "He will be a great addition to our offence, and we are very excited to bring him on board."

Moore had 73 catches for 1,105 yards and six touchdowns with the Leos last season. Over his career the 27-year-old has 110 catches for 1,554 yards and nine scores.

"This is a big move for our offence, as not only a veteran presence, but an immediate playmaker who can help groom some of our rookie receivers," head coach Mike O'Shea said. "Nick was someone our offensive staff really wanted, and I'm thrilled we were able to bring him in."

The Blue Bombers also signed receiver Rory Kohlert earlier in the day. Kohlert spent the past two seasons in Winnipeg and returned after briefly having his rights owned by the Ottawa Redblacks, who selected him in the Expansion Draft.
