RIDERS SIGN CANADIAN RECEIVER MITCHELL BAINES

The Saskatchewan Roughriders have signed national receiver Mitchell Baines.      

Baines (6’2 – 215) joins the Green and White after spending the last five seasons at the University of Ottawa. The 25-year-old Ottawa native played 29 career collegiate games with the Gee-Gees, registering 125 receptions for 1,889 yards and 16 touchdowns.

Last season, Baines was named a Second Team U Sports All-Canadian and First Team OUA All-Star after leading the nation with 65 receptions and 984 yards – averaging 123 yards per game – while ranking third with eight touchdown catches.

He will fins a good mentor in Rob Bagg and could be a starter in a year or two!

Good signing as Bagg is starting to get up there and Demski needs a breakout season or he should be traded. The Riders are in need of Cdn receivers but their greater need is to draft some cdn o-linemen so despite some quality receivers available in the Cdn draft, I hope they draft 3-4 o-linemen. St John had better come to camp ready to compete for a starting job or he can be considered a bust of a #1 pick.

Ben Heenan was an awesome #1 pick. Where as Shamari Williams was a waste of time. I sure hope STJohn turns out more like Big Ben than Shamari. I agree that Demski has to step up this year. His punt return has been average and he hasn't played well enough to rotate in with the starters. Pick it up Demski!

CALL ME AN IDIOT, BUT WOULDN'T A CANADIAN COMING OUT OF UNIVERSITY HAVE TO GO THROUGH THE DRAFT?

I hope Jones drafts more receivers, we sure need them.

Why were the riders allowed to sign him without drafting him?

You're an idiot.

He did go through the draft, last season.

He was unselected and the riders added him to their neg list.
