EDMONTON - Just call them the Edmronto Eskinauts.

The Edmonton Eskimos added yet another piece from last year's Toronto Argonauts with the signing of high-ranked cornerback Pat Watkins Wednesday.

That makes nine members of either the Eskimos coaching staff or player roster  to come from Toronto since Kavis Reed was fired as Edmonton's head coach in the off-season.

Considering the recent history between the two clubs since Ricky Ray was traded away for basically a song and dance in December 2011, it could almost be a case of: If you can't beat 'em, join 'em for the Eskimos right now.
