RIDERS ACQUIRE KING FROM ARGOS



The Saskatchewan Roughriders have acquired the rights to international offensive lineman Jarriel King from the Toronto Argonauts. In exchange, the Riders have sent international defensive lineman Andre Monroe to the Argonauts. 

King (6'5 – 315) played three regular season games for the Argonauts last season. Through three seasons with the Argos, King has played 29 regular season games, with 26 starts, spending time at guard and tackle.

Wasn't Monroe a keeper? Hopefully King is .

Anon #1. Apparently not to the new sherrif. We need upgrades at all positions. Yeah, that's right. All positions.

Monroe was a one-game wonder. This is a good trade, congrats Jones.

Monroe a keeper under O'Day's watch, as were the recent announced cuts he signed to contracts just a month ago. There's a new sheriff in town... Jones... Chris Jones. No wonder...

Jones trades a good DL for what - oh yes a wannabe OL

Great trade Jones - not

I thought Monroe was one of the better d players last season??? Not unless Jones has some better ideas. The Rider o line wasnt necessarily stellar, and probably needed a few changes as well.

Jones trades for a guy who was charged for sexual assult !!!!!!

Was found to be not guilty of the charges.

Hey yuck, the charges were dropped!

Don't worry, Jones knows who is going to play on the D-line already. Maybe a revamped O-line can keep DD upright. Keep doing your thing Chris.

Charged yes, but acquitted. Stick to the facts.

Chris Jones was with Toronto in 2013, so was King. Hmmmm.

It is written in Saskatoon Star Phoenix today that Ivan Gutfriend who has been the trainer for many , many years for the Riders is retiring and will not be back next year. This is a Regina Blog and not a thing has been said about Ivan . "WHY<WHY<WHY ???

This blog was the first to report the news about Ivan on Tuesday.

Who cares about Ivan. Irrelevant to the public and the fans.

My crystal ball says that by 2017 there will be a second Jones in green and white - a fellow by the name of Brett.

It's a refreshing thing to see that there are not sacred cows any more. That mentality has always kept the Riders from reaching the potential they should have. Shades of the Miller era where he could never get over the hump leading to the Marshall mess.

A 6'5" O-lineman that can play is more valuable than a 5'10 D-lineman who really only stood out in one game. It appears that Jones wants to keep DD healthy this season.

One player acquisition-one criminal. He will fit right in on Dewdney!

Anon states... ""put himself in that situation to be charged""
Any person can be charged by another person who is scorned and wants to make you pay.
There are thousands of false allegations every year. Especially in the area of discussion. If the man was acquitted or the charges were dropped then he is innocent. So give it a fricken break.
This has nothing to do with the code of conduct. how can you condem a person that was not charged in the end.
Love to cheer for the Riders. Hate being bunched in as a Rider fan with the likes of the trolls on here.

The troll in question is a sad sack Eski fan. Who can blame him? We would do the same, but there is no other blog like Rod's that is dedicated to the home team.

Esksfans.com is way better than roddys blog ,it's all about the Grey Cup Champs Edmonton Eskimos

Eskies are gonna be the first team in the CFL to win a grey cup one year than lose their coach and win it again the very next year ,it's never been done until 2016

Puck Hog said...

I will take your word it has never been done. It won't be done next year either. The 'Shmos have to make the playoffs before they can play in the big game.

Anonymous said...

Eskimos never trolled for 10 years when they were not making the playoffs. Then they win one Grey Cup in 10 years and the Shmo's fans think they are Gods gift to football. They will fall right back to where they belong. in the basement with the Oilers

Jeez sometimes I wish I didn't even read this blog. So many wingnuts. How about some intelligent comments about the trade? Is that asking too much from you people?
