OTTAWA -- The Ottawa REDBLACKS have signed import linebackers Jasper Simmons and Brandon Denson, as well as import defensive back Reggie Jones.
 
Denson, a 6-foot, 240-pound 26-year-old from Willow Run, Michigan, played university football for the Michigan State Spartans, where he recorded 45 tackles in four seasons.

Denson has experience in the CFL with Hamilton and Montreal. Last season, he served most of the year on the practice roster of the Alouettes. He made his CFL debut with the Tiger-Cats in 2011.

He has also seen action in the Arena Football League with the Cleveland Gladiators. Simmons joins the REDBLACKS after playing for the Toronto Argonauts in 2011 and 2012.
 
The 6-foot-1, 223-pound, 24-year-old native of Pensacola, Florida registered an interception in each season with the Argos.
 
Simmons played four college seasons: two at Missouri after two others at Hutchinson Community College. In 2009, he started 12 games at Missouri and made 73 tackles playing at the safety position.
 
Jones, a 6-foot, 200-pound 27-year-old from Bellevue, Washington, comes to Ottawa after spending parts of the past five seasons with NFL teams: New Orleans, Washington, Minnesota and Dallas.
 
He also played in the United Football League with the Virginia Destroyers and helped the team with the 2012 league championship.
 
Jones played one season of collegiate football at Portland State after switching from wide receiver at Idaho earlier in his career.

Yes fun to watch them build and it will be even more interesting to see how many of them actually snag a roster or PR spot. Don't recall Denson having any impact in Chamblin's 2011 Hamilton defense.
