REGINA — The Saskatchewan Roughriders have signed national wide receiver Devon Bailey to a contract extension, the team announced on Thursday.

Bailey will remain with the Riders after joining the team in August, 2017.

Through three seasons in Edmonton, Bailey played 39 regular-season games and four playoff games.

Last season, the six-foot-five, 202-pound receiver played six regular-season games with the Riders, registering five receptions for 80 yards and two touchdowns.

Bailey was eligible to become a free agent on February 13.
