TRANSACTIONS | Elks trade OL Kelly to Hamilton

The Edmonton Elks announced Monday the club has traded American Colin Kelly (OL) to the Hamilton Tiger-Cats in exchange for a 7th round pick in the 2023 CFL Draft.

Kelly spent six seasons with the Double E playing in a total of 50 games. The native of Longview, WA., signed with Edmonton back in May of 2017 and was extended in February of 2019.

Edmonton is back on the road for their Week 4 matchup on July 1 against the Hamilton Tiger-Cats at Tim Hortons Field.
