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.

LOVE IT!!!! If he screws up, send him packing, but you can't deny he is a force in the middle and is a player this D needs.

Is there really no other run stuffing DT out there? What the hell was Murphy brought here for?
