The Saskatchewan Roughriders announced today that non-import defensive lineman Luc Mullinder has signed a one-day contract with the team and will subsequently retire as a Roughrider.
A nine year CFL veteran, Mullinder played eight consecutive seasons (2004-2011) with the Roughriders after being selected by the team in the fourth round (31st overall) of the 2004 Canadian Draft. He also played for the Montreal Alouettes and Hamilton Tiger-Cats.
“Luc was a great teammate to have during the seven seasons we shared in Saskatchewan,” said Riders Assistant General Manager Jeremy O’Day. “He was dedicated to the program and wanted to win above all else. He was definitely a big contributor to the success we had.”
In his time with the Green and White, Mullinder tallied 88 defensive tackles, 15 quarterback sacks, six tackles for a loss, two fumble returns, two forced fumbles and one interception in 112 regular season games. He was a member of the 2007 Grey Cup Championship team.
Mullinder, his wife and daughter have made Regina their home.
