TORONTO – The Toronto Argonauts Football Club announced today the team has signed American DL Folarin Orimolade.

Orimolade, 27, is coming off the best season of his CFL career after posting 37 defensive tackles, six sacks, one interception, one forced fumble and a touchdown in 17 games for the Stampeders. The 5’11, 238lb defensive lineman was a force in the playoffs as well, recording six tackles, two sacks and one fumble recovery in the Western Semi-Final last season. The Washington, D.C. native signed with Calgary in 2018 and over the course of 34 games played has produced 52 defensive tackles, 11 special teams tackles, 10 sacks, one pick and three forced fumbles. The Dartmouth product was a part of the 2018 Grey Cup champion Stampeders and chipped in with two special teams tackles and a fumble recovery in the big game.
