The Saskatchewan Roughriders have acquired international quarterback Vernon Adams and a fifth-round selection in the 2018 CFL Draft from the Montreal Alouettes.
In exchange, the Riders sent national defensive back Tevaughn Campbell, a third-round selection in the 2018 CFL Draft and a third-round selection in the 2019 CFL Draft to the Al's.
Adams (5'11 – 200) was originally acquired by the Alouettes in a May, 2016 trade with the B.C. Lions, where he went on to dress for 15 regular-season games last season. The Oregon Ducks product completed 42 of 75 pass attempts for 575 yards and four touchdowns through three starts during his rookie campaign.
This season, the 24-year-old California product has dressed for all seven games as Montreal's backup quarterback where he has picked up nine rushing yards and one touchdown on eight carries.
