Riders Sign Khalif Mitchell
Khalif Mitchell is back in the CFL
The Saskatchewan Roughriders signed the veteran defensive lineman to their practice roster on Wednesday. Mitchell last played with the B.C. Lions in 2014.
A two-time All-Star, Mitchell registered just one sack in 11 games two years ago.
Mitchell recorded five sacks with the Toronto Argonauts in 2013.
The 31-year-old spent training camp with the Montreal Alouettes, but was released shortly after creating a firestorm for the team and league with offensive tweets.
The Riders also announced the release of receiver Kris Bastien.
The 1-8 Riders face Winnipeg in the annual Labour Day Classic Sunday at 1.
