The Edmonton Football Team has signed six players to contract extensions.

American defensive lineman Jake Ceresna, American offensive lineman Colin Kelly, and national receiver Harry McMaster are now signed with the team through 2022.

American receiver Kevin Elliott, national receiver Anthony Parker, and national fullback James Tuck have inked pacts through the end of the 2021 season.

Ceresna was originally acquired in a trade with the Ottawa Redblacks in exchange for veteran defensive lineman Odell Willis. In 2018, he made 32 tackles, eight sacks, and one forced fumble. He signed back with Edmonton in November 2019 following a stint with the New York Giants.

Kelly is back for his fourth season with Edmonton and his sixth in the CFL. The 31-year-old started all 18 games at right tackle in 2019 and was part of an offensive line that allowed the fewest sacks in the CFL with 27.

McMaster was a seventh-round selection by Edmonton in the 2018 CFL Draft. After returning to Western University for his final year of USports eligibility, he signed with Edmonton and played in 12 games in 2019.

Elliott returns for his sixth CFL season and his third with the EE Football Team. The Florida A&M University product has made 116 receptions for 1,510 yards and 13 touchdowns in his CFL career.

Parker was originally drafted third overall by the Calgary Stampeders in the 2011 CFL Draft. The former University of Calgary Dino has appeared in 117 CFL games over his nine-year career, recording 185 receptions for 2,344 yards and 15 touchdowns. He missed the entire 2019 season due to injury.

Tuck is a six-year CFL veteran who is well-known for his work on special teams. Originally signed by the EE Football Team in 2017, this will be Tuck’s fourth season with the green and gold. In 58 career CFL games, the York product has made 46 special teams tackles.
