The Ottawa Redblacks have re-signed veteran defensive backs Brandin Dandridge and Damon Webb, the team announced on Wednesday. Both were set to become free agents on Tuesday, Feb. 14.

Dandridge returned to the Redblacks midway through the 2022 season following a stint with the Kansas City Chiefs. He dressed for six games and made five starts at cornerback, recording 14 defensive tackles, two forced fumbles, and one touchdown.

The five-foot-eleven, 183-pound cover man has dressed for 18 regular season games with Ottawa since joining them fresh out of Missouri Western State University in 2019 and made 37 defensive tackles, one special teams tackle, two forced fumbles, and one touchdown.

The 26-year-old was 3DownNation‘s No. 31-ranked pending CFL free agent.

Webb dressed for 12 games as a member of the Saskatchewan Roughriders before being released by the team on July 1, 2022.

He signed with the Redblacks two weeks later and dressed for nine games in Ottawa, recording 33 defensive tackles, one special teams tackle, and one interception. He started seven games at boundary halfback and two at field-side halfback.

The 27-year-old went unselected in the 2018 NFL Draft out of Ohio State University but spent one season on the practice roster with the Tennessee Titans.
