“Cameron and Andrew are young yet proven National players who will be able to contribute on defence and special teams,” said REDBLACKS General Manager Marcel Desjardins.

Walker has played 35 games over three seasons for the Toronto Argonauts, recording seven special teams tackles last year. Walker, 25, played university football at Guelph.

Lue played in seven games last year for the Edmonton Eskimos, recording four special teams tackles. In four CFL seasons with Edmonton, Saskatchewan and Montreal, the 25-year-old Markham native and Queen’s product has 29 special teams tackles.
