Young, a 34 year-old Toronto native, will be entering his third season with the defending Grey Cup champions.

Last season, Young recorded 22 tackles and two sacks for the Eskimos.

"Glen's value to our defence is almost immeasurable because he does so many things well," Edmonton head coach Tom Higgins said in a statement.

"This is a significant signing and we are thrilled to have him back for next season."

In the last two weeks, Edmonton has re-signed defensive backs Donny Brady, Malcolm Frank and Fabian Burke to new deals.

Last month, the club inked non-import linebacker Roger Reinson to a new contract.
