Bemidji, MN - The Bemidji Axemen return two veterans to the team after re-signing wide receiver Josh Jarboe and defensive lineman Rony Nelson.

Jarboe returns to help the Axemen wide receiver group after having a productive season last year. Jarboe, an Arkansas State University alum, notched 244 receiving yards on 27 receptions with four touchdowns in five games with the team.
