The Edmonton Elks have signed American running back Terrance Roberts, American linebacker Tyrell Robinson, and American defensive back Marcus Lewis.

Roberts spent the 2019 season at the University of Central Oklahoma. He played in 10 games for the Bronchos and led the team in rushing with 127 carries for 668 yards (5.3 per rush) and 10 touchdowns. Prior to his stint with Central Oklahoma, the native of Phoenix, Ariz. spent two seasons at Mesa College and rushed for 2,050 yards and 18 touchdowns.

Robinson comes to Edmonton after playing with the San Diego Strike Force of the IFL in 2020. The linebacker has also spent some time in the AFL with the Philadelphia Soul and the CFL with the Saskatchewan Roughriders in 2018.

Collegiately, the California native played his freshman season for the Oregon Ducks before transferring to the Fresno State Bulldogs. He appeared in nine games as a freshman, finishing with 12 total tackles, but never saw game action after that year.

Marcus Lewis spent the 2021 season with the Ottawa Redblacks and appeared in four games, making nine tackles.

At the collegiate level, Lewis played two seasons with the University of Maryland and racked up 44 total tackles, two interceptions, six pass breakups, and one fumble recovery over 16 games.

The Washington, D.C. native played his freshman and sophomore years with Florida State, accumulating 21 tackles, two pass breakups, one TFL, one interception, and a fumble recovery with the Seminoles before transferring for his junior year.

In addition to the new signings, the Elks also announced the release of Tyree Robinson from the active roster. The defensive back just signed with the team on Monday.
