The Ottawa RedBlacks are hoping to sign former NFL offensive lineman Nate Menkin.

The RedBlacks are "working on" a deal, reported to be a two-year contract, to bring in Menkin, who played for the Houston Texans and Philadelphia Eagles.

Menkin, 6-foot-5, 300 lbs., was cut by the Texans last season, but landed on their practice squad.
