The Edmonton Eskimos announced today that free agent All-Star defensive end Joe Montford has agreed to terms on a contract. After receiving medical clearance, Montford is expected to practice with the Eskimos on Tuesday.
A veteran of 11 CFL seasons, Montford appeared in 18 games for the Eskimos last season and posted 27 defensive tackles, 10 sacks, 4 forced fumbles. He was released by Edmonton on April 27th, 2006.
Long considered one of the league's top rush ends, Montford is a five time CFL and East Division All Star, and a three time winner of the CFL's Most Outstanding Defensive Player (1998, 2000, 2001).
