EDMONTON -- The Edmonton Eskimos shored up their offensive line Monday, agreeing to terms with Canadian-born lineman Matthew O'Donnell.

Edmonton acquired the six-foot-nine, 340-pound O'Donnell on Sept. 5 from the Saskatchewan Roughriders for receiver Greg Carr.

Saskatchewan selected O'Donnell, who played collegiately at Queen's, in the second round, 15th overall, of the 2011 CFL draft. However, the native of Comox, B.C., signed with NFL's Cincinnati Bengals and spent the season on the practice roster before being released prior to the start of the 2012 campaign.

"We're very pleased to have Matthew join our football club," Eskimos GM Eric Tillman said in a statement. "His addition represents another step in the right direction as we continue to build a strong, young Canadian nucleus here in Edmonton."
