RIDERS RE-SIGN HUS, THIGPEN

The Saskatchewan Roughriders announced national long snapper Jorgen Hus and international running back/receiver Marcus Thigpen have signed extensions to remain with the team.       

Hus (6’1 – 230 lbs.) has signed a two-year extension to remain with the club through the 2019 season. The Saskatoon, SK native is currently in his third season with the Riders after originally joining the team in 2015. The 28-year-old has played 45 career regular-season games for the Green and White. 

Thigpen (5’9 – 195 lbs.) signed a one year extension to remain with the club through 2018. This season, the 31-year-old played two regular-season games with the Riders, starting one at running back. Along the way, Thigpen picked up seven carries for 32 rushing yards and a touchdown, and two receptions for 31 yards and a touchdown. He also added three punt returns for 77 yards and one kickoff return for 53 yards. 

Both Hus and Thigpen were eligible to become free agents in February.

Another speedster who came from the NFL is the Al's Stephan Logan who is now 36 years old. He continued to be very productive in his early 30's. Fellow speedster Thigpen, at 31 years old, should have another good three years of production before him and will provide the Riders with dynamic talent and veteran experience. His availability and signing is a lucky break for the Riders.
