Edmonton signs two-time East Division all-star defensive back Jonathan Rose

The Edmonton Football Team has signed former two-time East Division all-star defensive back Jonathan Rose.

Rose began his CFL career with the Ottawa Redblacks in 2016 where he was a key contributor in their 104th Grey Cup winning season. His best individual season came in 2018 when Rose forced nine turnovers, five interceptions, four forced fumbles, and scored a defensive touchdown.

In Rose’s four-year CFL career he has recorded 166 total tackles, nine interceptions, six forced fumbles, two defensive touchdowns, and one sack. The 27-year-old was named a CFL East Division all-star in 2016 and 2018.

Rose played just three games for Ottawa in 2019 as his season was cut short following a Week 4 loss to Winnipeg due to a back injury. He has been cleared for contact after undergoing spinal fusion surgery in January.

Dr. Wai performed the procedure at The Ottawa Hospital Civic Campus in the nation’s capital. That’s where Rose has spent the off-season rehabbing and working towards being fully healthy once again.
