RIDER SIGNINGS

The Saskatchewan Roughriders announced today that non-import offensive lineman Patrick Neufeld and non-import receiver Scott McHenry have re-signed with the team. Financial details were not released.

NEUFELD (6'6 – 296) will be entering his third CFL season, all with the Riders. Last year, the Regina native started in 13 of his 17 regular season games played and the West Semi-Final at right tackle after dressing in 17 games in 2011 as a back-up.

A product of the University of Saskatchewan, Neufeld was originally selected by the Riders in the fifth round (33rd overall) in the 2010 CFL Canadian Draft.

MCHENRY (6'2 – 217) will return for his third season with the Riders after entering the league with the Winnipeg Blue Bombers in 2010. Last year, the Saskatoon native dressed in all 18 regular season games registering 19 receptions for 171 yards and one touchdown. He added another three receptions for 35 yards in the West Semi Final.

Originally selected by the Calgary Stampeders in the fourth round (32nd overall) in the 2009 CFL Canadian Draft, McHenry previously played at the University of Saskatchewan and earned back-to-back spots in the East West Bowl. Over the course of his five seasons with the Huskies he tallied 125 receptions for 2,104 yards and ten touchdowns.

McHenry looked better each game he played last year, good signing as you don't know if Bagg will be back.

Both great signings by the Riders.
You need quality young Candians to be successful in the CFL.

If Bagg and Sisco are signed, then it's official.

Anyway, happy to see that Neufeld is back. McHenry has had his moments too, hopefully he keeps progressing.

can never have to many Canadians, especially on reciever and especially you don't know if Bagg and Sisco can stay healthy or not! Neufeld is a really good signing,, has a lot of potential!

Hope Bagg is indeed signed. Worried they were gonna Congi him outta town.

Name one other CFL team where McHenry would make it as a starting wideout. Only in Saskatchewan as the saying goes.

McHenry was a starter last year due to injuries to both Bagg and Sisco. That does not mean he is going to be a starter again this year...get a grip buddy. He is good depth and good on special teams but you are right he should not be a starter.
