WINNIPEG - The Winnipeg Blue Bombers have named all-time rushing leader Charles Roberts to their Hall of Fame.

The CFL club also named past president George Graham and Ralph Warrington for induction Sept. 18.

Roberts joined the Bombers in 2001 and spent seven-plus seasons with the club before being traded in September 2008 to B.C. for running back Joe Smith. Roberts was a six-time all-star with Winnipeg and the CFL's top special-teams player in 2001.

He led the CFL in rushing three times (2003, 2005, 2006) and is Winnipeg's career rushing leader with 9,987 yards and 64 TDs. He's also second in club history in combined yards (17,528) and touchdowns (79).
