Staying Put: Konar re-ups with Eskimos

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.”
