The Edmonton Elks have added two nationals to the club: defensive back Josh Woodman and receiver Chris Osei-Kusi.

Both players will be placed on the team’s suspended list as they complete the necessary COVID-19 quarantine period before joining the team.

Woodman is a four-year CFL veteran, after playing his first three seasons in Edmonton (2016-18), before spending the 2019 season with the B.C. Lions. The Chatham, Ont. native was originally drafted by the Green and Gold in the fifth round of the 2016 CFL Draft out of Western University.

Osei-Kusi was a fourth-round pick by the Montreal Alouettes in the 2019 CFL Draft after a standout career at Queen’s (2015-18) and Windsor (2019). The Brampton, Ont. native was released by the Alouettes last week.
