Riders Add Receiver: Not Dressler

The Saskatchewan Roughriders have acquired national receiver Cory Watson and a 3rd round pick (26th overall) in the 2015 Canadian Draft from the Winnipeg Blue Bombers.

In exchange the Riders have sent national receiver Kris Bastien, a 2nd round pick (15th overall) in the 2015 Canadian Draft, and the rights to a negotiation list player to the Bombers.

Watson (6’3 – 212) has spent five seasons in Winnipeg after the Blue Bombers selected him in the 2nd round (9th overall) of the 2010 Canadian Draft.

Last season the 30-year-old Quebec native registered 21 receptions for 287 yards and three touchdowns in 12 regular season games.

For his career Watson has recorded 178 catches for 2,217 receiving yards and six touchdowns in 67 regular season games. He was named the Blue Bombers Most Outstanding Canadian in 2011.
