Former Hamilton Tiger-Cats strong-side linebacker Don Unamba has agreed to terms with the Edmonton Eskimos, per sources.

Unamba had a breakout season in 2018 and was named a CFL all-star for his strong play. A physical with strong cover abilities, Unamba had 59 tackles, four sacks, three forced fumbles and one interception.

He joins another former Ticat, Larry Dean, who signed in Edmonton earlier on Tuesday.
