The B.C. Lions have found a fourth and fifth quarterback for Thursday's rookie camp.

The Lions added Kendrick Dozier from the Langston University Lions on Friday and announced Shawn Bell from Baylor Bears yesterday. Head coach and general manager Wally Buono said one of the Texans will get a chance to compete with Dave Dickenson, Buck Pierce and Jarious Jackson at training camp, which begins in a week in Abbotsford.

Dozier made 112 of 204 passes for 1,832 yards and 18 touchdowns last year with Langston. Bell was 241 for 383 with 2,582 yards and 19 touchdowns in 2006.

Buono said he has reached "common ground" with Dickenson and hopes to reach a contract extension before training camp. Slotback Jason Clermont, however, appears set to play out his option despite an offer from Buono. The Regina native has a real estate business and family in Saskatchewan and it's been speculated that he wants to become a Roughrider in 2008.

"He's very much committed to the B.C. Lions," Buono said. "He's a man of tremendous integrity and pride and he's coming here to get another [Grey Cup]ring."
