The Winnipeg Blue Bombers acquired offensive lineman Thaddeus Coleman from the Edmonton Eskimos in exchange for defensive back Willie Amos, the clubs announced on Monday.

Coleman, who turns 24 on June 20, was on Edmonton's practice roster last season after signing with the team in September of 2008. The Mississippi Valley State is 6'8, 310 pounds.

"He's a guy that has the potential to provide depth at that position," said Blue Bombers head coach Mike Kelly. "He has been able to play both left and right tackle. I had the opportunity to see Coleman grow as a player when he first entered the league as a rookie last year in Edmonton."

Amos had 52 defensive tackles, one forced fumble, one fumble recovery and one interception in 11 regular season appearances last year. The Texas native led the the team with seven pass knockdowns.

Prior to that, the now-26-year-old had briefly been on the Chicago Bears' practice squad in 2006 before being assigned to Hamburg of NFL Europa.
