Canadian Football League

Saturday, February 19, 2005

It's taken a couple of seasons but the Edmonton Eskimos finally got their man. Tight end Deitan Dubuc put his NFL dream on hold and signed with the Green and Gold for two years plus an option yesterday.
After seemingly bouncing from one NFL practice roster to another, he was looking to play in NFL Europe this spring. There were no takers.
"(The NFL) think I'm a little old, going to NFL Europe at 28,'' said Dubuc, whose CFL rights were acquired from Calgary in exchange for Edmonton's first overall pick in the 2003 Canadian college draft.
"So, you just move on. I haven't played in a year and a half.''
The Esks could utilize the six-foot-four, 250-pound Michigan grad as receiver or a fullback. Should he be able to hone his skills, Dubuc could also be used as a long-snapper.
