The Riders have shored up their offensive line by acquiring import lineman Cliff Washburn from the Toronto Argonauts for a 5th round pick in the 2010 draft and a conditional pick in 2011. Washburn had tried his luck this year with the Houston Texans, bud did not crack their roster. He did not play with the team upon his return. The team also confirmed the signing of Utah kicker/punter Louie Sakoda. He comes to the team with an impressive resume.
Linebacker Mike McCullough has been named the CFL's top Canadian for his efforts in the win over the Argos.
