(Edmonton) – The Edmonton Eskimos continue to add physical presence to the green and gold defence with the signing of import linebacker Donovan Richard.

Richard finished his collegiate career as a three-year starter and South Carolina State’s all-time leading career tackler. He earned First-Team All Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference honours as a senior, leading the team with 119 tackles. Earlier this year, Richard signed with the Jacksonville Jaguars as an undrafted free agent, but was released twice.
