EDMONTON – Swerve is staying in Edmonton. 

Veteran wide receiver Kyran Moore has signed a one-year contract extension with the Edmonton Elks, the club announced Friday.

In his first season with the Green and Gold, Moore suited up in all 18 regular season games in 2023, leading the CFL with 490 YAC (Yards After Catch) and was Edmonton’s reception leader with 69 catches. The Alabama native had 743 receiving yards and four touchdowns last season to finish second on the Elks in both categories, while completing his first pass attempt of his career, a 19-yard touchdown in the Labour Day Classic.

Through five CFL seasons, Moore has 279 receptions for 3,094 career receiving yards and 14 touchdowns. The 27-year-old began his CFL career with the Saskatchewan Roughriders, appearing in 46 games from 2018 to 2022.

In addition, the Elks have signed American defensive back Devodric Bynum. Bynum played four seasons at the University of Alabama at Birmingham (2019-22), where he totalled 68 total tackles, two sacks, 16 pass deflections and two forced fumbles in 43 career games with the Blazers.

As a senior in 2022, the Dallas, TX., native had his best game of his college career, recording eight tackles, two tackles for loss, two pass break-ups, one sack and a forced fumble against North Texas, earning him Conference USA Defensive Player of the Week honours. Prior to joining UAB, Bynum played one season at Northeast Oklahoma A&M (2018), where he had 40 total tackles, one sack and one interception in nine games.

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.
