EDMONTON - The Edmonton Eskimos have re-signed kicker Derek Schiavone to a new contract.
The Fort Erie, Ont., native made 16 of 19 field-goal attempts over five regular season games this year.
“We're pleased to extend our relationship with Derek," Eskimos general manager Eric Tillman said Monday in a release. "At 26, he’s got a bright future ahead of him."
Schiavone, who played CIS football at the University of Western Ontario, signed as a free agent with the Eskimos in 2008. He spent most of his first two seasons with the CFL club on the practice roster.
