The Ottawa Renegades re-signed defensive back Donnie Ruiz and added American receiver Bashir Yamini on Thursday.
Both players signed one-year deals, with an option. Ruiz, 26, is an original Renegade. The six-foot, 200-pound native of Montreal spent most of last year on the injured list after suffering a torn knee ligament July 2 in a game against the Edmonton Eskimos.
"I'm looking forward to a new and prosperous season and I'm sure things will turn around," Ruiz said in a statement. "I'll be coming into the season with a focused approach and I know the rest of my teammates are as well."
Yamini, 27, joined the Renegades late last year after spending time in the NFL with both the Dallas Cowboys and Carolina Panthers.
"We had him in for a look last year and we liked what we saw, so we felt the need to bring him back," said Chris McRobbie, Ottawa's director of player personnel. "Bashir brings the size and speed we are looking for."
