REGINA — The Saskatchewan Roughriders announced today that import defensive backs Macho Harris and Troy Stoudermire have both re-signed with the team.  Financial details of the contracts were not released.

Harris will enter his third season with the Riders after originally signing with the club prior to the 2012 season. Through his first two seasons, Harris has appeared in ten regular season games collecting 30 defensive tackles and one interception.

The 28-year-old Virginia native was a fifth round pick (157th overall) by the Philadelphia Eagles in the 2009 NFL Draft.  He opened that year as the Eagles starting free safety appearing in 15 regular season games with one playoff appearance. He also spent time with the Washington Redskins and Pittsburgh Steelers.

Stoudermire originally joined the Riders practice roster in October, 2012 after spending five seasons at the University of Minnesota. The Texas native spent time at receiver and defensive back as well as kick returner where he set an NCAA record with 3,615 career kickoff return yards.

He attended training camp with the Cincinnati Bengals last season prior to signing with the Green and White.
