ROUGHRIDERS BRINGING BACK LAFRANCE

The Saskatchewan Roughriders have signed national free-agent running back Kienan Lafrance to a one-year contract.

Lafrance (5’10 – 214) joins the Riders after spending last season with the Winnipeg Blue Bombers, where he registered 36 carries for 137 yards and two touchdowns in 16 regular-season games. He also played in the Western Semi-Final and Western Final.

This will be Lafrance’s second stint with the Riders after spending the 2017 season with the team. The 27-year-old Winnipeg native was originally selected by the Ottawa Redblacks in the 6th round (45th overall) of the 2015 CFL Draft.

In 61 career regular-season games through four seasons, Lafrance has totaled 147 carries for 590 yards and four touchdowns and 36 receptions for 264 yards and two touchdowns. He’s added six career playoff games and two Grey Cup games – winning with the Redblacks in 2016.

So with 6 RB's and 12 WR's on the roster does that mean we might have some flexibility and/or we might be able to trade for other commodities or will the excess just end up being released before the season starts?

Sheets? You can't be serious? He hasn't played since 2014. Good lord why do so many of you on here live in the past?

Because we haven’t gotten back to that ever since 2013, or anywhere close. Very mediocre teams since Cory Chamblain left.

First of all it was Chamblin not Chamblain...but you were close and points for not saying Chamberlain. Second his record was 29-34 with his best year being 2013 he was 11-7 when they bought a team and had a healthy Durant. Jones record was 27-27 with his best season being 12-6 with a banged up QB.. but hey dont let facts get in the way of your Jones hating.
