The Winnipeg Blue Bombers have added five import players -- two defensive linemen and three defensive backs -- and a non-import quarterback to the roster of players that will take part in the club’s three-day rookie training camp beginning Wednesday afternoon.

The club announced Wednesday morning that they have signed DL Zach Anderson (6-2, 270, Northern Michigan); DL Marcus Hyde (6-3, 242, William and Mary); DB Lamar "Marty" Markett (5-10, 162, South Carolina); DB Wesley Pendleton (5-11, 180, Mississippi); and DB Sam Pope (6-0, 192, Hampton).

The club also announced that Canadian QB Ben Rossong will take part in rookie camp. Rossong threw for 576 yards and 3 TDs in two seasons at the University of Western Ontario. He sat out last season after transferring to Saint Mary’s University.

The Bombers also announced that they have released OL James Carmon.

Just under 40 CFL rookies will take to the field at Investors Group Field at 3:30 p.m. Wednesday for the first of four practices over the next three days.
