The Edmonton Elks have signed veteran CFL receiver Tevin Jones following a season-ending injury to Kyran Moore.

The six-foot-two, 225-pound target caught 65 passes for 882 yards and three touchdowns as a member of the Saskatchewan Roughriders in 2023. He initially joined the team in 2021 but was released before training camp to sign with the Jacksonville Jaguars.

The 31-year-old signed with the Montreal Alouettes as a free agent in February but was released at the end of training camp as rookie receiver Charleston Rambo won the starting job vacated by Austin Mack’s departure for the NFL.

The native of Amory, Miss. has caught 85 passes for 1,147 yards and six touchdowns over 31 career CFL games.

Jones went unselected in the 2016 NFL Draft before stints with the Houston Texans, Pittsburgh Steelers, and Dallas Cowboys. He dressed for five games with the Steelers in 2019, making four catches for 61 yards.

The Edmonton Elks (0-1) will host the Montreal Alouettes (1-0) at Commonwealth Stadium on Friday, June 14 with kickoff slated for 9:00 p.m. EDT.
