Mills (6-0, 195, San Diego) left San Diego last season as the school’s all-time leading passer with 11,099 yards. A four-year starter at USD, he led the school to an 8-3 record in 2013 and threw for 35 touchdowns against only five interceptions. He was named Player of the Year in the Pioneer Football League this past season.

Rogers (5-11, 200, New Mexico State) made his signing with the Bombers public via his Twitter account on the weekend. He spent the past two season with Cincinnati of the NFL and a solid career with the Aggies where he served as both a receiver and kick returner. In his senior season, finished with 59 receptions for 1,048 yards and nine touchdowns.

The Bombers are back on the practice field this morning in preparation for Thursday’s clash of the unbeaten, with the Edmonton Eskimos – also 3-0 – at Investors Group Field.
