Jyles To Wpg A Done Deal?

The Winnipeg Free Press' Gary Lawless believes the Bombers have a new QB....

WINNIPEG - The Winnipeg Blue Bombers are poised to sign a new quarterback.
Ferrell Elliott, representative for Steven Jyles, told the Free Press Thursday afternoon that a deal with the former Saskatchewan Roughriders backup is imminent.
"We don’t have anything signed yet, but (Bombers assistant GM) Ross Hodgkinson and I are moving towards a deal. I expect to have something done in the next 24 hours... we’re on the way to a deal."
The Bombers are not commenting on the deal until it is registered with the CFL.
Jyles, a fourth-year pivot, has spent the last two seasons in Saskatchewan under new Bombers head coach Paul LaPolice and offensive co-ordinator Jamie Barresi. LaPolice was the offensive co-ordinator in Regina last season while Barresi was the quarterbacks coach.
Jyles is athletic and has a big arm but has also been schooled under LaPolice, who preaches ball security above all else.
