WINNIPEG — The Winnipeg Blue Bombers released American Ian Wild on Friday.

Wild spent six seasons with Winnipeg. He appeared in 67 career games recording 245 defensive tackles, 60 special-teams tackles, eight sacks, one interception and eight forced fumbles.

“This has been another difficult decision, as Ian has been an integral part of our organization for many years, dating back to 2013," Bombers' GM Kyle Walters said in a statement. "Through all those seasons, Ian was very productive for us and carried himself professionally, leading by his actions through both the good and the bad.

"We truly appreciate all he has given the organization.”
