CFL.ca Staff

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.

Good, now the Bombers can run the ball against the Eskies. Willis sucks on rush defense.

A good signing by Edmonton for sure as they add another key piece this off-season. Willis has now worn colours from every team in the prairies.
