EDMONTON – The Edmonton Elks have signed American defensive back Donovan Olumba to a one-year contract extension, the club announced Tuesday.

Olumba returns for a third season in Green and Gold, after suiting up in three games last season, recording six defensive tackles. The native of Nashville, Tenn., was moved to the active roster in Week 18, where he made his season debut at BMO Field against the Toronto Argonauts.

The Portland State product played in two games with the Elks in 2022, registering one interception. He also spent time in the NFL with the Dallas Cowboys (2019), Cleveland Browns (2020-21) and Los Angeles Rams (2021).

2024 marks the 75th season of pro football in Edmonton, as the Elks open a new CFL campaign on Saturday, June 8 against the Saskatchewan Roughriders at Commonwealth Stadium. Season tickets are available now, with all youth season tickets $75 (17 and under) and adult tickets starting at $175.




The Edmonton Elks are proud members of the Canadian Football League, playing their home games at Commonwealth Stadium in Edmonton, Alberta.

The club, officially renamed the Elks in June of 2021, has a tradition of excellence having won 14 Grey Cup championships (1954-56, 1975, 1978-82, 1987, 1993, 2003, 2005, 2015). Since its founding, the club has been community-owned and remains focused on providing outstanding football memories for Edmonton and all of Northern Alberta.
