Tiger-Cats trade Collaros to Roughriders

  Tiger-Cats trade Collaros to Roughriders The Hamilton Tiger-Cats have traded quarterback Zach Collaros to the Saskatchewan Roughriders for a second-round pick in the upcoming CFL Draft. The 29-year-old has spent the past four seasons in Hamilton and guided the team to three straight postseason appearances, including a trip to the Grey Cup in 2014. Collaros emerged as a reliable and steady contributor for Hamilton, though injuries have slowed him down and seen him miss 24 games since his breakout in 2015.With Brandon Bridge slated to hit the open market, Collaros gives the Roughriders depth at quarterback as he's expected to compete with veteran Kevin Glenn for the starter's job.

The next day, the Roughriders released veteran quarterback Kevin Glenn . The team signed national defensive lineman Zack Evans. They also released international linebacker Glenn Love and offensive lineman Derek Dennis, who was their top free agent signing from 2017.

The Saskatchewan Roughriders have signed quarterback Kevin Glenn — again. "Bringing Kevin in will provide a veteran presence at quarterback while increasing the level of internal competition," Riders head coach and general manager Chris Jones said in a news release .

The Roughriders previously announced the signing of Canadian quarterback Brandon Bridge to a one-year contract extension through the 2018 season. Bridge and Kevin Glenn split passing duties during the 2017 season.

The Riders are currently without a quarterback coach after the B.C. Lions hired Jarious Jackson as the team’s offensive co-ordinator and quarterbacks coach.

Glenn enjoyed one of his finest statistical campaigns in 2017, compiling a quarterback rating of 100.0 (67.9 completion percentage, 4,038 passing yards, 25 touchdowns and 14 interceptions). He was also durable, missing just one start with a hand injury that may have hampered him for an extended period.

Glenn, 38, has never played for a league championship in his 17-year career. He was in his third stint as a Rider, having previously played for the team in the 2001-2003 and 2015 seasons.

Glenn has played for the Riders, Winnipeg Blue Bombers, Hamilton Tiger-Cats, Calgary Stampeders, BC Lions and Montreal Alouettes.

The Roughriders have a media availability at 11 this morning.

CFL suspends Campbell after testing positive for banned substance .
The CFL suspended offensive lineman Bruce Campbell of the Saskatchewan Roughriders for two games after testing positive for a banned substance. Campbell, an American, tested positive for Ibutamoren, which has anabolic benefits that promote an increase in lean body mass. It’s Campbell’s first violation of the league’s drug policy, thus resulting in the two-game suspension. The six-foot-seven, 317-pound Campbell won’t be able to play for two games this upcoming season but it will be up to the Riders to decide if he’ll be able to participate in team activities. But that’s until Feb.
