OTTAWA — The Ottawa REDBLACKS have signed national receiver Scott MacDonell, national defensive back Teague Sherman and international running back Henry Josey, the team announced Monday.

MacDonell rejoins the REDBLACKS after he was released from the club in June. Shortly after being released by Ottawa, he signed with the Edmonton Eskimos but did not play a game this season. The Montreal native played 16 games for the REDBLACKS in his rookie season, collecting 13 receptions for 181 yards and one touchdown. His role transitioned from receiving to special teams in 2015 and in 2016 – where he and his team won the 104th Grey Cup presented by Shaw.

Sherman spent his four-year CFL career in Winnipeg where he played 57 games and collected 59 defensive tackles, 21 special teams tackles, two sacks, one touchdown and six forced fumbles.

In seven games in 2015 with the Argos, Josey compiled a total of 279 combined yards. Before joining Toronto, he spent time with the NFL’s Jacksonville Jaguars, Minnesota Vikings and Philadelphia Eagles. The 2011 All-Big 12 selection had 2,771 rushing yards and 30 touchdowns in four seasons with the Tigers.
