Veteran CFL receiver Adarius Bowman announced his retirement from the CFL on Thursday.

Bowman played seven seasons with the Edmonton Eskimos where he became a Grey Cup champion (2015) and was a three-time CFL all-star.

The slotback finished his career with 652 receptions, 9,491 yards, and 49 touchdowns in 141 regular-season games between Edmonton, Saskatchewan, Winnipeg, and Montreal.

Bowman was also the 2017 recipient of the Tom Pate Memorial Award as voted by the CFL Players’ Association. The honour is given to the player who displays outstanding sportsmanship and someone who makes a significant contribution to his team.

The 34-year old, who holds the Eskimos’ single-season reception record with 120 will move into his new career as an insurance broker.
