The Winnipeg Blue Bombers have signed American receiver Isaiah Coulter and American defensive backs James Campbell and Anthony Witherstone.

Coulter was a fifth-round pick in the 2020 NFL Draft by the Houston Texans and spent one season with the team, dressing for one regular season game. He was waived the following year in training camp and signed with the Chicago Bears, dressing for three games and receiving one target. He has also been a member of the Buffalo Bills, Arizona Cardinals, and the UFL’s DC Defenders.

The six-foot-two, 200-pound receiver ran a 4.45-second forty-yard dash at the NFL Combine in 2020 along with a 36-inch vertical jump, 121-inch broad jump, 4.62-second shuttle, and 7.28-second three-cone drill.

The native of Columbia, Md. played three seasons at the University of Rhode Island, making 132 catches for 1,855 yards and 12 touchdowns. He was a second-team All-CAA selection in 2019.

Campbell made 64 total tackles, two tackles for loss, two interceptions, seven pass breakups, one forced fumble, and two fumble recoveries over 41 collegiate games at Montana State University. The six-foot-one, 180-pound native of Palatka, Fla. helped the Bobcats win the Big Sky Championship in his senior season.

Witherstone signed with the Kansas City Chiefs after going unselected in the 2023 NFL Draft but was released after getting injured during the preseason. The six-foot, 190-pound defender from Warwick, R.I. played six collegiate seasons at Merrimack College, recording 74 tackles, two tackles for loss, four interceptions, two touchdowns, 19 pass breakups, and one forced fumble in 35 games.
