WINNIPEG -- Last season was a disappointment for Glenn January, but the offensive lineman is coming back to the Winnipeg Blue Bombers and promises his line will do a better job of keeping their quarterback healthy.
With a rotating cast of quarterbacks, the Bombers missed the playoffs after making a Grey Cup appearance the year before.
"I don't know that anybody in that locker-room was satisfied with the results we had last year,'' January said Wednesday.
He says part of their job is to keep the quarterback healthy. Starting quarterback Buck Pierce missed 11 games last season with a foot injury, concussion and finally a shoulder problem.
"Obviously, we didn't do a good enough job of that last year.''
"Part of the reason I chose to extend with the club is because I truly feel like we have a good core group of guys in that room," he said.
"I think we're capable of some very special things, so we'll just stay the course and continue to work hard," he added.
