Foster, 28, played last season for the Saskatchewan Roughriders and was named the team's most outstanding defensive player.  Playing linebacker, Foster had 71 tackles, three sacks and one interception in 18 games this past season.

Neither player has any NFL experience although Foster was with the Kansas City Chiefs during the 2013 preeseason. Foster (6-foot, 205 pounds) was an undrafted free agent out of West Alabama.

Lokombo, who was born in Zaire but raised in British Columbia, played his college ball at Oregon. He went undrafted in 2014 before signing with the B.C. Lions.
