Eskimos release Canadian OL Mason Woods, key piece in the James Franklin trade

The Edmonton Eskimos have released Canadian offensive lineman Mason Woods.

The Eskimos acquired Woods in December 2017 trade when Edmonton sent quarterback James Franklin and a third round CFL draft pick to the Toronto Argonauts.

Woods was selected in the second round, 10th overall during the 2017 CFL draft. The 24-year-old has yet to suit up in a CFL game through two seasons in the league.

The towering six-foot-nine, 324-pound offensive lineman has had two teams give up on him already.
