Eskimos really like a lot of kickers
FOOTBALL • With four spots on the Edmonton Eskimos current roster of 70 players occupied by kickers, what’s afoot?
Eskimos GM Eric Tillman has added veterans Jamie Boreham and Louie Sakoda in recent days to a mix that already included newcomer Chris Bodnar and incumbent Derek Schiavone.
“Nothing is concrete, but our current plan is to go with two kickers and to utilize the strengths of each,” says Tillman.
“If we go the Canadian route, Jamie will kick off, Derek will handle most field goals, with Jamie attempting any kicks 50 yards and beyond.”
And the two would also vie for punting duties.
