Aaron, Jerome and Ramon aren't the latest boy band. They're the B.C. Lions' newest free agent receivers.

Import pass-catchers Aaron Krepps, Jerome Eason and Ramon Barber were inked by the Lions yesterday.

Krepps was seventh nationwide in all-purpose yards, averaging 176.9 per game for Pennsylvania's Washington and Jefferson University.

Eason was Southern Utah's leading receiver the last two seasons. Barber played 41 games for Illinois State and switched to defensive back in 2005.

They'll be at Lions' rookie camp in Abbotsford on May 18.

Veterans report on May 21, but Jason Crumb won't be among them. The safety from Kelowna retired yesterday after six seasons.
