Maze And Williams Sign Contract Extensions

The Saskatchewan Roughriders announced today that international defensive back Terrell Maze and international receiver Korey Williams have signed extensions to remain with the team. As per club policy, financial details of the contracts were not released.
Maze (5’11 – 175) will be entering his fourth year with the Roughriders after originally signing with the team as a free agent in April, 2012. Last season, the San Diego State product started 17 regular season games at half back where he collected 34 defensive tackles, nine pass knockdowns, two tackles for loss, one quarterback sack and one recovered fumble. His lone interception was returned 28 yards for a game winning touchdown  August 7th in Winnipeg.
The 30-year-old Maze has started all 46 regular season games he has played through three seasons, totaling 106 defensive tackles and two interceptions.    
Williams (6’ – 185) will remain with the Green and White for his third CFL season and second with the Riders. Last season the NorthWest Oklahoma State product registered ten receptions for 142 yards and one touchdown, while adding one rush attempt for 18 yards and a touchdown in four regular season appearances. He also added two receptions for 66 yards and a touchdown in the Western Semi-Final.  
The 27-year-old joined the Riders as a free agent in July, 2014. He originally entered the CFL with the B.C. Lions ahead of the 2013 season where he went on to play 15 regular season games. Williams was eligible to become a free agent on February 10th.    
·         The Riders also announced Ron Selesky has joined the Club as a US based scout. Selesky has over 17 years of professional football management and supervisory experience, including six as a head coach. He spent last season as the assistant head coach with the Cleveland Gladiators of Arena Football League where he was named 2014 AFL Assistant Coach of the Year.

Great news that they are stepping up the American recruitment. That's been lacking big time.

Maze might be most under-rated DB in CFL.

Glad he's on our side.
