With the National Football League currently on lock down, two former Delaware State University standouts are pursuing their professional football dreams north of the border.

The Canadian Football League (CFL) Winnipeg Blue Bombers have announced the signing of former DSU defensive tackle Andre Caroll to two-year contract, while the CFL's Hamilton Tiger Cats have inked former Hornet cornerback Francis Adjei to a three-year deal.

Caroll was a 2010 All-MEAC First Team and SportsNetwork FCS All-America Third Team selection. Last season, he was tops on the Hornets and fifth in the MEAC in tackles (8.7 pg). He set a Delaware State record for defensive linemen with 96 total tackles last year. In addition, Caroll was eighth in the MEAC in tackles-for-loss (1.23 pg ... 13.5 total) and 13th in sacks (0.36 pg ... 4.0 total). The Neptune, N.J., native was also credited with two forced fumbles, two fumble recoveries, five quarterbacks hurries and an interception. Caroll was an All-MEAC Second Team pick in 2009.

Adjei was tied for third in the MEAC in passes defended in 2010. He tied for the DSU lead with two interceptions, while also tallying 14 pass deflections and 12 pass break ups last season. The Silver Spring, Md., native totaled eight interceptions, 32 pass deflections and 24 break ups in his Hornet career.

Caroll and Adjei are expected to report to their team's respective pre-season training camps next week.

The Canadian Football League regular season runs from mid-June to early November
