WINNIPEG, MB -- The Winnipeg Blue Bombers have acquired non-import offensive lineman Marc Parenteau and a 2014 3rd round pick from the Toronto Argonauts in exchange for non-import running back Anthony Woodson and a 2014 5th round pick.

“Marc is a veteran Canadian offensive lineman who can play at multiple positions along the offensive line,” said Acting General Manager, Kyle Walters.  “We thank Anthony for his time in Winnipeg and wish him the best in Toronto.”

Commented Argonauts General Manager Jim Barker, "Marc was an important part of our Grey Cup championship and we would like to thank him for his time as a member of our football club."

Parenteau (6-5, 304, Boston College, DOB: April 12, 1980 in Sherbrooke, Québec) returns to Winnipeg where he spent parts of two seasons as a member of the Blue Bombers, playing in 10 games across the 2005 and 2006 seasons.  After originally being drafted by the Ottawa Renegades in the fifth round (36th overall), Parenteau signed as a free agent with the Saskatchewan Roughriders in 2007 and became a starter on their offensive line before joining the Toronto Argonauts last season, starting 12 games.  Parenteau has played in 122 games over the course of his CFL career.

Woodson has played in 11 games since being drafted by the Blue Bombers in 2010.

Interesting trade between the Argos and the Blue Bombers. Hopefully Woodson will help the Argos running game and Parenteau will help the Bombers offensive line making for a good trade for both teams. These recent moves by the Blue Bombers is starting to rekindle my interest in them a little bit

I was talking to Andrew Bucholtz from the 55 Yard Line blog. He told me that he thinks the Argos might start to use him on special teams and develop him further down the road. He's a Canadian, so that is something

I'm holding my breath and hoping that Walters is not going to trade away most his top draft picks to get a few washed up veterans that other teams are trying to unload. That's what Taman did when he was in the Peg.

How does this make any sense whatsoever? Woodson has been injured his entire career, decent on special teams, but whatever... hardly an impact player, the second best NI RB on a team that uses an import starter at the position... Parenteau not only fills a need, but Walters also UPGRADED his pick in the trade

Anyone give me any info on Woodson? I feel like this is a good trade for both teams. Parenteau was solid depth for us but wasn't playing any, and we definitely need all the help we can get at RB.

Woodson is a talented player but has spent most of his time with the BBs on the injured list. Could be good IF he can stay healthy.

Drafted in the 4th round 2010 by BBs. Had a great career with the Dinos.
