DES MOINES - Iowa Barnstormers Head Coach and Director of Football Operations Mike Hohensee announced the assignment of two more players to the team's 2013 roster on Tuesday. Joining the club will be rookie fullback Kai Brown along with second-year receiver Josue Paul. Both players have been assigned to Iowa on one-year contracts.
"Both of these players will have a great impact on our team," Hohensee said. "They are both professionals and there's no doubt they can play at the next level. I'm looking forward to working with them to achieve that."
Brown (6-3, 250, Brown) played for four years at Brown University where he played linebacker and defensive end. During his junior season he finished second on the team with 6.5 sacks.
Paul (6-1, 218, Central Connecticut State) comes to the Barnstormers after spending the 2012 season with the Milwaukee Mustangs. In four games last season with the Mustangs, Paul recorded 18 catches for 269 yards and five touchdowns, four of which came against Philadelphia in Week 9. He signed with the Kansas City Chiefs as a free agent in 2011. In 38 career games at Central Connecticut University, Paul caught 103 passes for 1563 yards and 10 touchdowns. He also returned four kickoffs for scores.
