Winnipeg Blue Bombers
The Winnipeg Blue Bombers named Walters interim General Manager for the remainder of the 2013 CFL season following a disappointing 1-5 start. The team didn't finish any better, going 2-10 the rest of the way and failing to qualify for the CFL playoffs. Despite the disappointing finish to the year, the Bombers removed the interim tag and named Walters GM for the 2014 CFL season. In 2014 the Bombers finished 7-11 following a 5-1 start. In the offseason Walters made some key signings for the Offensive Line.
