The Saskatchewan Roughriders announced today international free agent quarterback Kevin Glenn has signed with the team. As per club policy, details of the contract were not released.  

Glenn (5’10 – 200) joins the Riders for the third time in his career ahead of what will be his 17th season. The Illinois State product originally entered the CFL with the Green and White in 2001, spending three seasons in Saskatchewan, before making his second stop in 2015.

Last season, Glenn started nine of ten regular season games played for the Montreal Alouettes completing 222 of 314 pass attempts (70.7%) for 2,547 yards and 13 touchdowns. He was acquired by Winnipeg on September 12th, where he went on to dress for the Blue Bombers final seven regular season games and the West Semi-Final.    

Starting 19 of 56 games through parts of four seasons as a Rider, Glenn has completed 341 of 579 pass attempts for 4,397 yards and 15 touchdowns.

“Bringing Kevin in will provide a veteran presence at quarterback while increasing the level of internal competition,” stated Riders Vice President of Football Operations, General Manager and Head Coach Chris Jones. “Whether he is on the field or not, Kevin will have a positive impact on our group. He is a proven leader and talented player that we expect to come in and compete with the other quarterbacks for the starting position.”    

The Michigan native currently sits 7th all-time among CFL quarterbacks with 48,813 career passing yards. His 268 career touchdown passes rank 9th all-time. Glenn has also spent time with Winnipeg (2004-08), Hamilton (2009-11), Calgary (2012-13) and B.C. (2014) through his 269 career games played.
