Adding another pair of defensive linemen to the mix, the Calgary Stampeders will have no shortage of competition at training camp when it comes to the front four.

Lindsey Witten and Torrey Davis are the latest to enter the fold Monday, inked by Stamps GM/head coach John Hufnagel.

"I'm looking forward to seeing these guys compete hard at camp," Hufnagel said in a statement.

He drafted a couple of young prospects at the position in the CFL draft, and made a trade with the Edmonton Eskimos that same day for defensive lineman Brian Bulcke, but with Corey Mace coming off back surgery and Miguel Robede's concussion issues late last season, the more the merrier as the Stamps look for a mix of run-stoppers and quarterback nightmares when camp opens next month.

The Stamps also parted ways with Mike Labinjo last week because of long-standing concerns over his fitness.

The 23-year-old Witten went to the University of Connecticut and signed with the NFL's Pittsburgh Steelers in 2010 before joining the United Football League's Hartford Colonials.

Davis, 22, tried out with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers last year and then went to the Arena League's Spokane Shockers.
