On Friday afternoon the Saskatchewan Roughriders announced they've released linebacker Otha Foster to allow him to pursue an NFL opportunity.

Less than an hour later we learned Foster has signed with the Baltimore Ravens.

The 28-year old from Angie, LA played his college football at West Alabama.  He spent the 2013 season with the Kansas City Chiefs before spending three years in the CFL with Toronto, Edmonton and Saskatchewan.

The 6'0", 210 lb defender won a Grey Cup with Edmonton in 2015 and was the Roughriders' defensive MVP in 2016.

Good luck Otha and thank you for your service with the Green & White!

Rob, nobody is upset, they are pleased that several CFL players are making the jump to the NFL. This is good for the CFL as others will see the CFL as a way to get to the bigs.
