The Saskatchewan Roughriders announced the following roster moves:


· National defensive lineman Ivan Brown
· International defensive lineman Derrick Lott


· International defensive back Fred Bennett
· National defensive lineman Levi Steinhauer

Brown (6’2 – 240) remains with the Riders after originally signing with the team in August of 2016. Last season, the Regina native picked up six special teams tackles, four defensive tackles and a quarterback sack in 13 regular season games.

With previous stops in Montreal, Hamilton, Toronto and Winnipeg, Brown has totaled 30 defensive tackles and 28 special teams tackles in 70 regular season games through seven CFL seasons.

He was eligible to become a free agent on February 14th.

Lott (6’4 – 295) has signed with the Green and White after attending 2016 training camp with the Oakland Raiders, playing three preseasons games.

Before going pro, the 26-year-old Georgia native played three seasons at the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga where he was named 2014 First Team All-SoCon and played in the 2013 East-West Shrine Game.

Lott also spent time with the Philadelphia Eagles during the 2016 off-season and attended training camp with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2015.

Excited to see Derrick Lott battle for a spot on the D line. We need to find a guy that eats up double teams and space, so best of luck to him.

2 weeks until free agency opens up and I'm sure we'll grab a player or two. Would love to see Derek Dennis come our way and anchor our O-line for 2017.

With the loss of Hus to the NFL, the cutting of Steinhauer is a surprise. Levi was an excellent long snapper and special teams player. Who will be the team's long snapper?

Problem with Levi is he broke down more often than a Ford. He's not reliable so it's smart to move on to our next option. Long snappers are easily found.

Long snappers readily found?

If that was the case good long snappers wouldn't have a 10-15 year career playing only on 3rd or 4th down.

Injuries ended this guy's tenure in Sask unfortunately

Isn't Randy Chevrier still on the roster as experienced long snapper?
