OTTAWA - Fred Rouse has been a five-star recruit, he's been a player people talked about as a future NFLer, he's also been in jail.

He knows what it feels like to be at the top, but is also pretty familiar with rock bottom.

Rouse, a receiver who turns 28 next month, is one of the first three players -- also including defensive back Nick Turnbull (who played one regular-season game for the Chicago Bears and two for the Atlanta Falcons) and defensive end DiMetrio Tyson -- signed and invited to training camp by the Ottawa RedBlacks.
