The Edmonton Elks have signed American offensive lineman Darion DeBrossard and Global kicker Ryan Meskell, as Chris Jones continues to add to his roster ahead of training camp.

The six-foot-four, 295-pound DeBrossard saw action on both sides of the ball throughout his collegiate career. The native of Snellville, Georgia, appeared in nine games for the Austin Peay Governors in 2019 and spent the previous four years at Vanderbilt, playing in 11 games for the Commodores. ​He finished his career with a combined four total tackles and one tackle for loss, while also seeing the field as a short yardage blocker.

Meskell joins the Elks after spending three seasons with the University of Hawaii. The Australian-born kicker converted on 26-of-39 field goal attempts throughout his college career and was named to the Lou Groza Award Watch List in 2019.

The team has also released National long snapper Zachary Greenberg, after the Elks drafted Peter Adjey of Queen’s in the third round of Tuesday’s CFL Draft.
