The Ottawa Redblacks garnered the most attention with their trades during the CFL Draft Tuesday night, but the Edmonton Eskimos also made a significant move to land a solid, veteran player.

As part of their return for sending the third overall pick to the Toronto Argonauts, who used it to select running back Anthony Coombs, the Eskimos received veteran offensive tackle Tony Washington.

Washington spent the past two seasons with the Argonauts after starting his career in Calgary, helping the Double Blue win the 100th Grey Cup in 2012. The move reunites Washington with head coach Chris Jones, Toronto's defensive coordinator the past two seasons.

Along with Washington, the Eskimos also received Toronto's first and second round picks, selecting wide receiver Devon Bailey and running back Aaron Milton, defensive back Otha Foster, and a negotiation list player.

As part of the deal the Eskimos also sent their third round pick to Toronto, with the Argonauts using it to select defensive lineman Jaskaran Dhillon.
