EE Football Team Signs American Offensive Lineman Derek Dennis
(Edmonton) - The Edmonton Football Team announces today they have signed former CFL Most Outstanding Lineman Derek Dennis through the 2022 season.
Dennis originally entered the CFL with the Calgary Stampeders in 2015 after NFL stints with the Miami Dolphins, New England Patriots, Chicago Bears and Carolina Panthers - as well as the Arizona Rattlers of the AFL. The Temple product has played in 72 games during his five-year CFL career.
Since joining the league, Dennis has been regarded as one of the best offensive linemen in the CFL. In his first full season of Canadian football, Dennis was named both a CFL all-star, and the 2016 CFL Most Outstanding Lineman. He is a three-time West Division all-star (2016, 2018, 2019) and was a Grey Cup Champion in 2018.
Dennis played four of his five CFL seasons with the Calgary Stampeders. He spent the 2017 season with the Saskatchewan Roughriders.
