Canadian kicker Hutchins returns to Green and Gold


EDMONTON - The Edmonton Elks announced Monday the signings of National Greg Hutchins (K) and Americans Trayone Gray (RB) and Denzel Washington (DB).

Gray signed with the Elks back in January of 2022, before being released in early May. The University of Miami product spent 2019 training camp with the Cleveland Browns, and had a stint on the Toronto Argonauts roster in late 2020. Collegiately, Gray played four seasons for the Hurricanes, finishing his university career with 60 rushes for 294 yards and five touchdowns.

Hutchins returns to the Elks after finishing the 2022 season on Edmonton's practice roster. The Bedford, N.S., native had previously been on the Green and Gold’s practice roster in 2019 before signing with the Lions late that season. ​

Washington played two seasons at Arkansas Tech University (2019-2021), where he recorded 37 total tackles, one interception, 10 pass deflections and one forced fumble in 21 career games for the Wonder Boys.
