REGINA — They grew up together, learned the game and played college football together and now four years into their CFL careers, Justin and Jordan Herdman-Reed are on the same team again, having inked free-agent deals with the Saskatchewan Roughriders.
Justin spent the first three years of his career in Toronto with the Argos and had signed with Hamilton in free agency last year. Jordan had spent his entire career with the BC Lions, close to Simon Fraser University, where he and Justin played together.
In BC, Jordan was active in 16 games in 2019, with 37 tackles, eight on special teams, a sack and a forced fumble. With the Argos, Justin had 37 tackles, five on special teams and two sacks through 11 games in 2019. Upon parting ways in the 2017 CFL Draft, it marked the first time the twin brothers from Winnipeg hadn’t played the game together.
With the Herdman-Reed brothers, the Riders get a pair of players that can make plays on defence and chip in on special teams.
