Charleston Hughes Signs Contract Extension With Riders

The Saskatchewan Roughriders have signed international defensive lineman Charleston Hughes to a contract extension keeping him with the team through 2019.

The Riders acquired Hughes February 2nd in a trade with the Hamilton Tiger-Cats, shortly after the Ti-Cats had picked up Hughes from the Calgary Stampeders.

Hughes (6’1 – 246) is a veteran of 10 CFL seasons after originally joining the Stampeders in June, 2008.

Over the last 10 seasons, Hughes has registered 412 defensive tackles, 99 quarterback sacks, 38 special-teams tackles and 23 forced fumbles. He’s also appeared in 11 career playoff games and four Grey Cup games.

In 2017, the 34-year-old Hughes registered 41 defensive tackles, 11 quarterback sacks, two tackles for loss and one forced fumble.

That's Jones/Murphy scouting and recruitment department at it's finest. Lock in a guy until he's 36 years old, that will build a dynasty.
