Offensive lineman Travis Bond has signed with the Edmonton Eskimos.
Bond was released by the Saskatchewan Roughriders among the team’s final training camp cuts after the Riders signed him to a one-year contract with a signing bonus worth between $20,000 and $30,000 in free agency.
The 27-year-old started 16 games for the Winnipeg Blue Bombers last season and he was a CFL all-star at guard in 2016. Bond has tremendous size at 6-foot-7, 360 pounds.
Bond was a seventh-round pick, 214th overall by the Vikings in 2013. He spent parts of two NFL seasons with Minnesota, Carolina and St. Louis playing in two games.
