The Edmonton Football Team have signed American wide receiver Jalen Tolliver and American linebacker AJ Hotchkins ahead of the 2021 CFL season.

Tolliver attended the University of Arkasas-Monticello from 2014-2017 where he was a unanimous First Team All-Great American Conference selection in 2016. His most productive college season came in his junior season where Tolliver recorded 1090 receiving yards and 14 touchdowns.

During his pro-career, Tolliver has spent time with the NFL’s Arizona Cardinals, Tennessee Titans, and Kansas City Chiefs. He most recently played under new EE Football Team head coach Jaime Elizondo as a member of the Tampa Bay Vipers of the XFL. Before the league suspended operations, Tolliver was fourth in the league in receiving yards with 297.

Hotchkins attended both the University of Oregon (2016-2017) and the University of Texas-El Paso (2018). At Oregon, he accumulated 41 total tackles, 1.5 sacks and one interception. In his final college season at UTEP, Hotchkins recorded 126 total tackles and seven sacks.
