Another Rider FA Re-signs

Saskatchewan Roughrider head coach Ken Miller announced today they have re-signed non-import linebacker Mike McCullough to a one-year and an option contract. Financial details of the signing were not released.

McCullough is heading into his seventh season with the Green and White. He was originally selected by the team in the third round (23rd overall) in the 2003 CFL Canadian Draft. The St. Francis Xavier product dressed in all 18 regular season games last year. In his time with the Riders, McCullough has tallied 80 defensive tackles, 70 special teams tackles, three quarterback sacks and four tackles for a loss in 104 regular season games.

“Re-signing Mike was very important for our football club,” stated Riders head coach Ken Miller. “On the field, Mike brings a wealth of knowledge as both a linebacker and special teams player. Off the field, Mike is a leader in the locker room. His character and work ethic is a tremendous influence on the younger players.”
