Riders Sign Two FA's and Keep One Of Their Own

The Saskatchewan Roughriders announced today they have signed non-import defensive back Weldon Brown. The club also announced non-import linebacker Tristan Black and non-import receiver Jordan Sisco have agreed to terms with the Riders. Financial details of the signings were not released.

Brown (5’10 – 185 lbs) joins the Riders after playing three seasons in Edmonton. In 13 starts for the Eskimos last season, Brown recorded 35 defensive tackles, a fumble return and a quarterback sack. In 47 career regular season games, Brown had 136 defesnive tackles, five interceptions and three quarterback sacks.

Black (6’2 – 220 lbs) spent the past three seasons with Toronto. In 15 regular season games last year, Black recorded eight defensive tackles and 17 special teams tackles. Originally drafted by the Calgary Stampeders in the second round of the CFL Canadian Draft, Black has dressed in 52 career regular season games and has recorded 17 defensive tackles and 50 special teams tackles.

Sisco (6’1 – 212 lbs) returns to the Riders for his third CFL season. The Regina native dressed in the Riders first seven regular season games last year before an injury forced him to miss the remainder of the season. Sisco finished last year with seven catches for 103 yards.

Brown and Black are good signings. Like the Brown signing better than the Anderson one.

Looks like the other 7 teams in the CFL were as disappointed in Sisco as the fans in Rider Nation have been. He’ll stick around and get another chance for 1 more year if the Riders choose not to draft a wr in the draft.

With Brown and Anderson here, good riddance to McKenzie. Go to Hamilton and get burned with Nick Graham on a game-by-game basis.

I hope the offer to Sisco wasn't anything outlandish. The guy has no idea how good he could be.

Why the hate for Sisco? The kid can play if given a chance. If Getzlaf can be an impact player so can Sisco.

I've said it before and I'll say it again if Sisco was an american he would have been cut 2 seasons ago.

Getzlaf was a Major disappointment last year, why have Sisco follow in his shoes ?
