Esks re-sign Donny O, re-unite King brothers

The Eskimos have signed free-agent defensive end Don Oramasionwu, bringing him back to Edmonton for a sixth season.

Oramasionwu has amassed 104 defensive tackles, eight quarterback sacks and three forced fumbles in 101 career CFL games.

He was originally selected by his hometown Winnipeg Blue Bombers in the 2008 CFL draft. The six-foot-two, 290-pound lineman spent three seasons with the Bombers before signing with Edmonton as a free agent on Feb. 15, 2012. He later re-signed on Jan. 28, 2015.

Earlier Wednesday, the Eskimos came to terms with defensive back Neil King.

King, an Edmonton native, played the last three seasons with Hamilton, recording 15 tackles and one quarterback sack.

Prior to being selected by the Tiger-Cats in the 2013 CFL draft, he played four seasons at Saint Mary’s University (2009-12).

He is the younger brother of Eskimos long snapper Ryan King.
