EDMONTON – ​ The Edmonton Elks have released American defensive back Aaron Grymes, the club announced Thursday.

Grymes spent eight seasons (2013-15, 2017-18, 2021-23) with the Green and Gold, where he recorded 240 defensive tackles, 19 special teams tackles and 12 interceptions in 79 career games with Edmonton.
