The Edmonton Eskimos released four players on the eve of training camp, including centre Kyle Koch and fullback Darcy Brown.

Koch originally signed as a free agent in 2009 and played in 68 games over four seasons with the Eskimos.

Brown was acquired from the Hamilton Tiger-Cats midway through last season in exchange for defensive back Ricardo Colclough and the Eskimos' sixth round pick in the 2015 CFL Canadian Draft. He played four games as an Eskimo, registering three special teams tackles and a blocked punt.

Offensive linemen Joel Bell and Dale Stevenson were also released.
