EDMONTON - The Edmonton Elks announced the addition of two players Friday, signing Americans Shannon Brooks (RB) and Jordan Lucas (DB).

A sixth-round draft pick by the Miami Dolphins in 2016, Lucas has suited up for 50 games over five NFL seasons, winning Super Bowl LIV with the Kansas City Chiefs before spending 2021 with the Indianapolis Colts. ​

Lucas played collegiately at Penn State from 2012 to 2015, totalling 81 tackles, three interceptions, 11 tackles for loss, and four sacks over his NCAA career. He twice received All-Big Ten honourable mention from the conference’s media and coaches, in his sophomore and junior seasons.

Brooks played five seasons at the University of Minnesota (2015-19), where the Georgia native had 431 carries for 2,290 yards and 20 touchdowns in 38 career games for the Gophers. He also had two receiving touchdowns and passed for one touchdown, a 42-yard strike to Drew Wolitarsky in 2015.

Brooks spent the last two seasons in the Indoor Football League, with the Massachusetts Pirates in 2021 before joining the Arizona Rattlers last season. He rushed for 396 yards on 89 attempts, while adding 18 touchdowns on the ground and nine receiving touchdowns with the Rattlers.
