The Winnipeg Blue Bombers are shopping the Mayor of Swaggerville, defensive end Odell Willis.

The 27-year-old has 34 sacks through four CFL seasons with Calgary and Winnipeg, including 13 in 2011 which tied for the league lead.

Saskatchewan, Toronto and possibly Edmonton are believed to be interested, with the Bombers looking for multiple draft picks in return.

Willis had an outstanding first half last season during which he had at least one sack in seven of Winnipeg's first eight games. But his play down the stretch tailed off with just one sack in Winnipeg's final five games of the regular season.

An outspoken personality, Willis was anointed the Mayor of Swaggerville in becoming the Bombers emotional leader on its league-leading defence last season.
