Bombers add to Canadian Football League training camp roster

The Winnipeg Blue Bombers added some depth to their defensive line with the signing of defensive end Marcus Jones Thursday.
Jones was one of the top-rated defensive linemen going into last month's NFL draft but went unclaimed. Bombers general manager Brendan Taman said his team was fortunate to be able to sign a player of Jones' caliber.
''This guy is pretty special,'' Taman said. ''He is a pass rush specialist. He comes off the edge like he is coming out of a gun. He's a perfect fit for the CFL game.''
Jones was a standout during four seasons with the University of Louisville Cardinals.
The speedy pass rusher collected 91 solo tackles, 42 assisted tackles and 23 quarterback sacks for 144 yards during his college career. Last season he had 23 solo tackles, 22 assisted tackles and 9 sacks for 144 yards for the Cards.
