The Ottawa Renegades have raided the B.C. Lions defence, signing linemen Cameron Legault, Marc Pilon and Ray Jacobs. The trio also played together in Calgary in 1999.
''We are pleased to have these gentlemen on board with us and we feel they will be an upgrade to our defensive line,'' Joe Paopao, Ottawa's coach and general manager, said in a release. ''We believe these guys are at the stage of their careers, where we believe they will be ready to be major contributors.''
Jacobs, a West Division all-star in 2003, signed a one-year deal plus an option. He didn't play last season.
Legault, entering his seventh year in the CFL, played the last five seasons in B.C. after spending his rookie season with the Calgary Stampeders.

Pilon heads into his sixth year in the league after four solid years at Syracuse University. The Renegades are his fourth CFL team, following stints in Calgary, Edmonton and B.C.
