Canadian offensive lineman Jacob Ruby has signed with the Edmonton Eskimos.
The 24-year-old was drafted eighth overall in the 2015 CFL draft by Montreal. He played in 20 games for the Alouettes over two seasons before being released by general manager Kavis Reed.
At six-foot-seven, 315 pounds, Ruby has the body to play offensive tackle, a position where he started games in Montreal. He’s young and could still reach his potential as a ratio-breaking blocker.
