Tuesday, April 4, 2006 - 12:30PM
The Edmonton Eskimos have re-signed offensive linemen Patrick Kabongo, Rhett McLane and Tim Bakker.
A product of the Nebraska Cornhuskers, Kabongo is entering his third year with the Eskimos. He saw action in 12 games last season.
McLane, who appeared in three games last season, played junior football with the Saskatoon Hilltops before spending three years at the University of Saskatchewan. He is also entering his third year with the Esks.
Bakker was traded back to Edmonton from Hamilton on December 2, 2005. He was originally selected by Edmonton with their first selection (third overall) in the 2000 CFL Canadian College Draft and played in Edmonton for three seasons.
â€œPatrick and Rhett are promising young players and Timâ€™s experience will help contribute to the success of this yearâ€™s team,â€? said Eskimos offensive line coach Bill MacDermott.
