REDBLACKS extend defensive lineman Shologan | | Official Site of the Canadian Football League


OTTAWA -- The Ottawa REDBLACKS have signed veteran defensive lineman Keith Shologan to a one-year contract extension.

The 28-year-old from Rochester, Alta., was selected by the Redblacks from the Saskatchewan Roughriders' roster in the 2013 CFL Expansion Draft.

"We knew that Keith was an exceptional player and leader when we selected him in the expansion draft and he has proven that both on and off the field," REDBLACKS general manager Marcel Desjardins said in a statement. "He works hard during both games and practices, and Keith is a fine representative of our team in the community as well."

Shologan has started in all seven Redblacks games this season and has registered nine defensive tackles.

"I'd like to thank the Redblacks for this opportunity,'' said Shologan.

"The fans in Ottawa and Gatineau have been tremendous and welcoming to our family. It's truly been a pleasure to play here with a great group of teammates in front of such awesome fans."

The REDBLACKS host Calgary on Sunday.

Good extension for the R&B. Hated to see him leave Rider Nation, but we couldn't protect everyone.

Good luck Sholy - was hoping to see you back in green, but I don't think so any more.

Got to hang with Kieth in Regina after a game 2 yrs ago. Great guy. Everyone still angry the Riders left him open. Best wishes for a great future that finds you back west.
