Edmonton Eskimos: Oct 1, 2012 - The Edmonton Eskimos have signed import defensive tackle Kade Weston and import linebacker Kye Stewart.
Weston comes to the Eskimos after spending time with the Pittsburgh Steelers. In 2010, he was drafted by the New England Patriots in the seventh round (248th overall) of the NFL Draft. The following year, he was added to the practice roster of the Indianapolis Colts. Weston played college football at the University of Georgia with Eskimo defensive end Marcus Howard.
