Esks add Canadian receiver Hargreaves



EDMONTON — The Edmonton Eskimos signed free-agent receiver Aaron Hargreaves on Monday.

Hargreaves spent the last four seasons with the Winnipeg Blue Bombers after being selected in the second round, 15th overall, in the 2008 CFL Canadian college draft. The native of Ladner, B.C., who played collegiately at Simon Fraser, had 30 catches for 292 yards last season.

“We feel very fortunate to add a young Canadian of Aaron’s calibre,” Eskimos GM Eric Tillman said in a statement. “He brings size and experience, and, along with our upcoming CFL draft selections, will give our club greater ratio flexibility.”
