The Edmonton Eskimos have signed non-import kicker Grant Shaw to a new contract ahead of free agency.

It was Ed Hervey's first move since being introduced as the team's new GM earlier this week.

Shaw handled all kickoff and field goal duties for Edmonton last season after being acquired by the Toronto Argonauts in the trade that sent Ricky Ray east. The three-year veteran was 32-42 on field goal attempts. Shaw also filled in for an injured Burke Dales as punter midway through the season, finishing with an average of 46.1 yards per punt.

Shaw was twice named Special Teams Player of the Week and was the team's nominee for Most Outstanding Special Teams Player.

While terms of the deal were not disclosed, TSN's Dave Naylor reported his deal could be six figures.
