REGINA — The second day of free agency continues to be the busiest one for the Riders, who announced Wednesday the signing of veteran international linebacker Greg Jones.
Jones, a six-foot, 242-pound inside linebacker, joins the Riders after spending the last two seasons with the Toronto Argonauts.
Last season the 27-year-old Michigan State product registered a team-leading 98 defensive tackles and 17 special teams tackles, starting all 18 regular season games on his way to being named a 2015 East Division All-Star.
Prior to arriving in the CFL, Jones spent two seasons in the NFL playing six games with the Jacksonville Jaguars in 2012. He also played 16 regular season games – with five starts – and four playoff games with the 2011 Super Bowl champion New York Giants.
