EDMONTON — TSN is reporting the Edmonton Eskimos have traded defensive end Fred Perry to the Winnipeg Blue Bombers in exchange for defensive back Kelly Malveaux.

Perry, a nine-year veteran, was acquired by Edmonton before the 2008 season but saw action in only seven games, with one sack.

The native of Fort Smith, Ark., has 57 sacks and 299 tackles in his CFL career. Winnipeg will be Perry’s fifth stop in the league, including two stints with the Eskimos.
