Gregory Alexandre
REGINA - The Saskatchewan Roughriders acquired defensive tackle Gregory Alexandre from the Edmonton Eskimos on Monday for linebacker Alex Ogbongbemiga.

The six-foot-two, 277-pound Alexander registered 23 tackles and five sacks in 23 regular-season games with Edmonton. He was originally selected in the fifth round, No. 35 overall, by the Toronto Argonauts in the 2011 CFL draft.

Saskatchewan selected Ogbongbemiga in the third round of the 2016 draft.

* The club also announced it released Canadian kicker Johnny Mark.

Despite all the hype about building a team and developing depth we are trading draft picks for journeymen approaching their best before date. It feels like we are spinning our wheels again.

This move makes sense. With Jones and Eguavoen, LB is a position of strength for us (Jeff Knox Jr, our MVP from last year, hasn't even been starting this year). Our D-line is sorely in need of help given the lack of pressure on opposing QBs this year.

At least they are trying something and building cdn depth at a position of weakness. He will be a good rotational player at thr very least.
