Offensive lineman Dariusz Bladek, Eddie Meredith and Marc Glaude, wide receiver Mitchell Picton, linebacker Alexandre Chevrier and defensive lineman Emmanuel Adusei have all signed with the team and are schedule to attend training camp on Sunday, May 28th.

Good luck young men! We are rootin 4 ya!

Is that politically correct to call someone a man these days!!!!?

LABATT N BAGG are the faces of the Riders as there are soooo many newbies on the team. Jones just keeps Trumping players and some great ones at that!

1st year since 66 I'm not getting sucked into all the hype. Not hoping either, did enough of that in the 80z.

Not hyped about the new stadium after watching how the organization crapped the last game in the ole stadium.

Fix both O and D front lines and the rest will look after itself.

Go Riders

Congratulations to Chris Getzlaf. Better late than never. I think he'll definitely make the team in Edmonton.

I am guessing that each of these rookies signed for not much more than what they could get with their degrees. I can see why some of them hold out depending how badly they want to risk their long term health for the sake of a game.

Hey "crybaby bitch" ! You happy with the way the Saskatchewan Roughriders been run since 2014?

I like many are not!!!!!!

If Jones runs 2017 like 2016 serious cracks will develop in the new stadium.
