The Saskatchewan Roughriders have confirmed international receiver Maurice Price has filed retirement papers to the Canadian Football League.
"We are surprised and disappointed to hear of Maurice Price's decision to retire. We were given no indication when we acquired Maurice and negotiated a new contract that he may not continue playing," stated Riders General Manager and Head Coach Chris Jones. “As a team we will continue to move forward with our free agent camps and work through the CFL Draft. An opportunity has opened up for another player.”
The Riders also confirmed that as per CFL regulations, the trade with the Ottawa Redblacks will stand.
