The Toronto Argonauts have signed national kicker and punter Zackary Medeiros.
Medeiros was originally drafted in the sixth round of the 2014 CFL Draft by the Edmonton Eskimos.
The 27-year-old played 13 games for the Ottawa Redblacks in 2016 as a punter. He punted 62 times for 2,162 yards – 43.7 average – including a long of 76 yards.
Adding Medeiros to the roster makes it clear at this point that Toronto wants to keep the kicker position Canadian with Ronnie Pfeffer handling all three duties currently. Pfeffer has made 4-of-8 field goals with a long of 42 yards and punted 41 times for 1,938 yards – 47.3 average – with a long of 66 in six games as the Argos primary leg in 2018.
