The Winnipeg Blue Bombers have signed import defensive back Donald Brown Jr. and non-import offensive lineman Chris Kowalczuk.
Brown Jr. (5-10, 185) was released from the B.C. Lions during last seasonís training camp after playing one game with the Lions in 2008. At Wingate University, he was a two-time All-Conference selection as a cornerback and an All-Conference selection as a return specialist.
Kowalczuk (6-5, 295), who played at the University of Toronto as a guard and tackle from 2006-09, spent the final two weeks of the 2009 season on the Hamilton Tiger-Cats practice roster before signing with Hamilton on October 28.
