The Edmonton Eskimos added some much needed depth overall this year. Its important for the Eskimos to get to the Grey Cup in their home city. Either in the West or a cross over in the East, Edmonton has a shot this year… thats for sure!
Eskimos Key Off Season Signings/New Players:
With Edmonton Making A Trade With The Argo’s. The Eskimos have brought in Reciever M.Talbot. He is a great canadian reciever who can catch and pick up quick yards. Just like Peterson, Talbot will benefit a rebirth in Edmonton.
Edmonton has two key kick returners this season. Green & Jackson! Looks good. If Jackson ankle acts up again. He will likely be released for cheapier returner Skyler Green. Green filled in well last year near the end of the season.
With Edmonton trading away Maurice Mann. Hill will be looked to gain major yards this upcoming season. This move could pay off big for Edmonton. Or it may not?!?!?!? Personally, i prefer Hill over Mann.
Clifford Lewis & Jeremy Parquet
The Eskimos signed these two big olinemen. Both linemen are over 6foot 6in. Lewis is writen down as 6ft 8, 310 LBS,
Parquet is writen down as 6ft 7, 335LBS. If these two have great speed, they could be the Eskimos new tackles a few years down the road. Edmonton pays O-Tackle Armstrong alot of money. Being in his option year, he will likely take a crack at the NFL next season. Lewis, Parquet have a shot, no promises.
The Eskimos have 15 DB’s on their roster. Edmonton brought in alot of depth for camp. This will be interesting for sure. Some DB’s could move to safety as well. Edmonton has two current Safeties on their roster. Corbin Sharun (listed at DB) would likely be a practise roster player, moved from DB to Linebacker. Camp is coming. No one is safe this year.
The Eskies brought in ALOT of new defencive linemen this year. Braidwood is 100% ready to go. Edmonton could bring the top DLINE to the field this year. Watch out for NFLer Pettaway. Braidwood, Romero, Ellis are three top CFL linemen. Cant wait for camp to see the battles!
Should Be Interesting!
