The Saskatchewan Roughriders have acquired offensive lineman Xavier Fulton in a trade with the Edmonton Eskimos.

In exchange for the 25-year-old Chicago native, the Eskimos will receive a conditional sixth-round draft pick in 2013.

Fulton spent two years in the NFL with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, the Indianapolis Colts, the San Francisco 49ers and the Washington Redskins.

The University of Illinois product recently tried his hand at boxing and won the Golden Gloves in Chicago earlier this month.
