“We are happy to have Abdul back in Ottawa. His experience at multiple spots in the backend as well as his great energy are welcome additions to the defence,” said GM Marcel Desjardins. “Despite his fascination with Manchester United, we still decided to sign him for 2020.”
Last season, the 29-year-old played in 16 games for the Toronto Argonauts and tallied 70 defensive tackles, one sack, one interception and one forced fumble.
In 74 career games, the five-foot-10, 165-pounder has collected 250 defensive tackles, two special teams tackles, seven sacks, 14 interceptions and seven forced fumbles. The London, England native was named a CFL All-Star in 2015 and an East Division All-Star in 2015 and 2016.
