The Fever also signed former Iowa State defensive lineman Bailey Johnson. Johnson (6-3, 280) started eight games for the Cyclones in 2010, recording 20 tackles, five tackles-for-losses and one forced fumble.
Finally, the Fever signed linebacker Allen Walker. At 6-1, 240 pounds, Walker was fifth on the University of Mississippi team in 2010 with 75 tackles.
