(Edmonton) - The Edmonton Eskimo Football Club announces the signing of national offensive lineman Matt O'Donnell.
The six-foot-eleven, 340-pound product of Queen's University returns to Edmonton after attending training camp with the NFL's Cincinnati Bengals.
O'Donnell was originally drafted by the Saskatchewan Roughriders in the second round of the 2011 CFL Canadian Draft. He opted to sign with the Bengals where he spent the season on the practice roster.
Returning to the CFL the following season, Edmonton acquired his rights from Saskatchewan in exchange for wide receiver Greg Carr and a 2013 fifth round draft pick.
In three seasons with the Green and Gold, O'Donnell played 42 games, seeing action at left guard and right tackle.
