Riders sign Rob Bagg; release Trent Richardson

REGINA — Veteran receiver Rob Bagg is making his return to Riderville.

Just a few months after his release, the Saskatchewan Roughriders announced on Wednesday they have signed the Canadian pass-catcher.

Bagg, along with Chad Owens and Bakari Grant, was let go in early June, just before the 2018 season was set to begin.

Last year, the 33-year-old played in 17 regular season games and collected 339 yards and a touchdown.

The Kingston, Ont. native had been a member of the Roughriders since 2008, playing his entire CFL career with the team, before his release just after training camp. The 33-year-old had suited up in 139 games with Saskatchewan and tallied 364 receptions for 4,705 yards and 24 touchdowns. He also won a Grey Cup in 2013 and was named a West Division All-Star in 2014.

The Riders also announced they have released international running back Trent Richardson. The 28-year-old played four games in 2017 and collected 259 yards and two touchdowns on 48 carries.

Saskatchewan also announced the following roster moves:


  • International quarterback Devin Gardner
  • International defensive back Shawun Lurry
  • National defensive lineman Tresor Mafuta



  • International defensive back Will Blackmon
