The Winnipeg Blue Bombers have signed American receiver Dalton Schoen.

The six-foot-one, 210-pound Schoen originally signed as an undrafted NFL free agent with the Los Angeles Chargers in 2020, but was released following training camp.

In 2021, he signed a futures contract with the Kansas City Chiefs and later that year joined Washington’s practice roster. He re-joined the Chiefs in December of 2021, being added to their practice roster.

The 25-year-old Schoen was a walk-on at Kansas State University, climbing up the depth chart to eventually start as a sophomore and record 92 receptions for 1,569 yards with nine touchdowns over 34 games from 2017-2019.
