EDMONTON — The Edmonton Eskimo Football Club announces the signing of free agent import defensive end Odell Willis.

“Odell is a proven, perennial, prolific pass-rusher,” says Eskimo Head Coach Kavis Reed.

Willis had 23 tackles and 6 quarterback sacks in his first season with Saskatchewan in 2012, helping lead the Riders back to the post-season.

Prior to joining the Riders, the West Georgia product spent four seasons with the Winnipeg Blue Bombers as their premier rush end.  The self-proclaimed Mayor of ‘Swaggerville’ has posted 101 career tackles and an impressive 40 QB sacks in his five CFL seasons…More to come.
