RIDERS ACQUIRE QB JAKE WATERS

The Saskatchewan Roughriders have acquired international quarterback Jake Waters from the Hamilton Tiger-Cats in exchange for a negotiation list player.

A CFL source tells RodPedersen.com the neg list player is former South Florida quarterback B.J. Daniels. He's a veteran of the 49ers, Texans, Seahawks and Giants.

Waters (6'1 – 210) is currently in his first CFL season after signing with Hamilton in April, 2016. The 24-year-old Iowa native has dressed in all three games this season for the Tiger-Cats as a backup quarterback. 

Last season, Waters attended training camp with the Seattle Seahawks after signing with the team in August. He had originally signed as an undrafted free agent with the Jacksonville Jaguars in May, 2015. 

Before going pro, Waters spent two seasons at Kansas State where he completed 421 of 657 pass attempts for 5,970 yards and 40 touchdowns in 26 collegiate games.

This is exactly what Rider fans need to see. The ones that think that Darian isn't an elite QB and want him gone.
QB's don't just pop up like RB do. It is the most difficult position on the team and takes a lot to be the main guy.
As a fan I have seen the years between Austin \ Burgess and Durant. It was long and painful. As a team you will probably
go through 30 starters before you find that Elite QB once again. That's why BC has held onto Lulay through all his injuries.
Or Toronto with Ricky Rae through all his injuries. Heck look at Montreal since Calvillo was injured here in SK on game day.
Right now they are riding with Glen because they just couldn't find a starter.
The Riders are looking for a back up with the skill set of Willy. As he's a solid back up and just an average to below average starter.
Even just finding a back up has been a whirl wind. So as not to be rude, please refrain from using uneducated dumb remarks when
Suggesting the Riders replace Darian Durant. He once again had the game won in Edmonton. It was the Defence that let the team down with 19 seconds left! When Darian truly finds his mojo this year with all the new receivers. Plus his pressure decisions become sharp and honed. The Riders offence will be very good!

I agree 110% Victor Isted. I love what C.J. and Murphy are doing by looking for the right guys. I was just pointing out how hard it is to find a worthy back up QB. So finding a starter is even that much harder.
The message was for those who feel that Darian should be replaced. I hear it at the gym and have gotten into heated discussions. The people that call for Darian to be replaced are usually fair weather fans. That type of thinking is ludicrous.
