- Free Agency
EDMONTON — After briefly testing the free agency market, linebacker Adam Konar has elected to stay in Edmonton, inking a new deal with the Eskimos.
Konar had a breakout season in 2017 as he found a regular spot in Edmonton’s lineup as the Eskimos were hit with an injury bug.
“I’m really excited to be back in Edmonton for the next two seasons,” Konar said in a statement. “My goal now is to help the club win the Grey Cup at home.”
He played in 12 games and tallied 59 tackles, four special teams tackles, one sack, two interceptions and a forced fumble.
The 24-year-old was drafted by Edmonton in the third round (25th overall) of the 2015 CFL Draft and won a Grey Cup with the team that year.
