EDMONTON – The Edmonton Elks have signed American defensive backs Cail Jackson Jr., and Chauncey Moore, the club announced Thursday.

College teammates at Alabama State University, Jackson Jr. and Moore played two seasons with the Alabama State Hornets in 2022 and 2023. The defensive back duo most recently took part in the third annual Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU) Pigskin Showdown in December 2023, an All-Star game for HBCU draft-eligible players.

In 22 career games with the Hornets, Jackson Jr. recorded 63 total tackles, one sack, five interceptions, seven pass deflections and three forced fumbles. Prior to attending Alabama State, the Midville, GA., native played one season at Ventura College in 2021, registering 22 tackles and one forced fumble in six games.
