Riders Announce Roster Moves: QB/RB Positions Determined

While, the release of WR Jamal Richardson in Montreal may be the biggest surprise of CFL cutdown day. The Saskatchewan Roughriders made some bold moves releasing some CFL veterans on Saturday night.

Of note:

Quarterback Anthony Weber was the odd man out in the battle under centre. Darian Durant, Tino Sunseri and Seth Doege are the three quarterbacks that the Riders will keep this season.

The running back position will for now be a tandem of Keith Toston, and Anthony Allen as Jermaine Thomas was cut.

National/Canadian receivers Jade Etienne and Jordan Sisco were released, Mortty Ivy who had a great first pre-season game was also let go.

Kicker John Mark from the University of Calgary was released despite being a draft pick of the club last month.

Saskatoon Hilltop Andre Lalonde was also released.

And veteran linebacker Brandon Isaac was also let go.

Now it isn’t the end for all of these players as the Green and White have yet to name their 10 man practice roster. They are expected to to that early next week.
