Blue GM Kyle Walters continues to add veteran pieces to his training-camp roster, including a pair of NFL-experienced defenders on Tuesday.

The Bombers signed import linebacker Leon Williams and import defensive back Brandon Hogan.

Williams (6-3, 248, Miami, July 30, 1983, in Brooklyn, N.Y.) was drafted in the fourth round of the 2006 NFL Draft by Cleveland.

Williams played three seasons with the Browns and in 46 games totalled 120 tackles, five sacks, five passes defended and one fumble recovery. Williams also played with the Dallas Cowboys and Kansas City Chiefs in 2012.

Hogan (5-10, 190, West Virginia, April 1, 1988, in Manassas, Va.) was a fourth-round pick of the Carolina Panthers in the 2011 NFL Draft. He played in three games that season with the Panthers and recorded four tackles. Hogan was also with Carolina for part of the 2012 season.
