Neufeld has been with the Bombers for the past five seasons and is the projected starter at left guard heading into the season.

Matthews returned to the Blue Bombers after four seasons in the NFL and a brief stint with the Calgary Stampeders last season. Matthews is a projected starter at receiver for the Bombers.
