Former Winnipeg Blue Bombers defensive lineman Jason Vega will be giving the NFL a try next season.
Vega, a native of Brockton, Mass. who played college football at Northeastern, signed with the New England Patriots on Tuesday.
Vega couldn't officially sign with the Patriots until he became a free agent last Friday.
Vega spent the last two seasons with the Blue Bombers, posting 66 tackles and 12 sacks.
