Former Esk Zylstra to visit Commonwealth Stadium

Former Edmonton Eskimos receiver Brandon Zylstra will be in the building on Friday night when his former team takes on the BC Lions.

The 26-year-old Zylstra parlayed a ridiculous 1,687-yard season with Edmonton in 2017 into an opportunity with the NFL’s Minnesota Vikings; the Spicer, Mn. native featured on special teams last year as a rookie with the Vikes, and is entering the second season of a three-year deal down south.

Friday will also give Zylstra a chance to reconnect with Mike Reilly — the QB he made magic with two years ago — who joined BC this past winter.
