(Edmonton) - The Edmonton Eskimos have signed free agent, national slotback Chris Getzlaf.

Getzlaf originally joined the Green and Gold in February 2016. Last season, he recorded 41 receptions for 455 yards and two touchdowns in 18 games.

Originally selected by the Hamilton Tiger-Cats in the 2007 CFL Draft, he was traded to the Saskatchewan Roughriders where he would play for eight seasons.

The two-time West All-Star (2012, 2013) has amassed 6,149 receiving yards on 409 receptions with 40 touchdowns.

A member of two Grey Cup championship teams, Getzlaf was on the practice roster for the 2007 Rider win and named the Most Valuable Canadian in the 2013 Grey Cup victory.

Happy for Chris. Knew his role & was a good contributor last year. Reilly really likes him - says he thinks like a QB. He could still have helped the Riders. Outside of Bagg & the inconsistent Demski we have no experience ie. depth at National receivers.
