The Saskatchewan Roughriders announced today they have acquired import wide receiver Geroy Simon from the B.C. Lions.

The 14 year veteran is currently the league’s all-time leading receiver recording 15,787 career receiving yards to date. The 37-year-old presently sits third in receptions with 989, just 29 catches away from the all-time record. His 100 receiving touchdowns also places him third among career leaders.
Last season, the six time CFL All-Star had 54 receptions for 700 yards and two touchdowns in 13 regular season games. He was on pace for his tenth consecutive 1,000 yard season before missing five games due to injury.
· In exchange, the Riders have sent import receiver Justin Harper and a 3rd Round pick in the 2014 Canadian College Draft to the B.C. Lions.

Great signing! Good job Taman!
First Cortez and now Geroy. I am guessing Darian must have a big grin on his face.
Harper and a 3rd? That's it! We stole him!
I can hear Roy Shivers laughing.
Its the Clermont saga all over again! We salivate because of the guy's past and Wally laughs.
How much is Geroy getting paid and what is that in comparison to Weston and Getzlaf?
