The Edmonton Eskimos have added some Canadian depth at receiver.
Jimmy Ralph signed with the team on Thursday, almost a week after he was released by the Toronto Argonauts. Ralph is a native of Raymond, Alberta and is a former member of the University of Alberta Golden Bears.
Ralph went unselected in the 2017 CFL draft but made Toronto’s roster as a rookie, appearing in 16 games. He set a number of new career-highs in 2019, including: games played, 18; targets, 50; receptions, 38; and receiving yards, 366.
The 27-year-old joins a national receiving crew that includes Tevaun Smith, Danny Vandervoort, Hunter Karl, Harry McMaster, Anthony Parker, Malik Richards, Shai Ross, and Alex Charette.
Jimmy is the younger brother of retired CFL receivers Brock and Brett Ralph.
