EE Football Team signs Jonathan Rose and Mike Jones

The Edmonton Football Team have signed former two-time East Division all-star defensive back Jonathan Rose and National wide receiver Mike Jones.

Jonathan Rose began his CFL career with the Ottawa RedBlacks in 2016 where he was a key contributor in their 104th Grey Cup winning season. His best individual season came in 2018 when Rose forced nine turnovers (five interceptions, four forced fumbles) and scored a defensive touchdown. In Rose’s four-year CFL career he has recorded 166 total tackles, nine interceptions, six forced fumbles, one sack, and two touchdowns. The Auburn/Nebraska product was named a CFL East Division all-star in 2016 and 2018.

Mike Jones was originally drafted by the Hamilton Tiger Cats in the second round (18th overall) of the 2016 CFL Draft. During his four-year CFL career, Jones has started 58 games accumulating 101 receptions for 1472 yards, and four touchdowns. The 28-year-old’s most successful season came in 2018 when he recorded four 100-yard receiving games and showed his big play ability with three receptions of over 75 yards.
