The Saskatchewan Roughriders have signed centre Dan Clark to a two-year contract extension, keeping him with the Club through the 2021 season.

Clark (6’2 – 310 lbs) returns after a 2019 season that saw him named a CFL All-Star for the first time in his eight-season CFL career. Clark was also named the Roughriders Most Outstanding Lineman. The 31-year-old was a stalwart on an offensive line that saw many changes due to injury, but went on to allow just 37 sacks. The offensive line also opened up holes for the run game which averaged 112.8 yards per game for a total of 2,030 yards and a league-high 26 rushing touchdowns. After overcoming injuries from a serious car accident before training camp, Clark played every game this season, including his 100th career game on July 27 against the BC Lions.

Clark, who was born and raised in Regina, initially joined the Club as a territorial junior in 2009. He’s played 112 career regular-season games, six playoff games and the 2013 Grey Cup with the Green and White after making his pro debut August 19, 2012.

Solid move. Like what J-O is doing.

Guessing there isn't much of a $$$ hike here for Dan and that he probably give Riders the hometown discount.

Gotta wonder if Labatte will be deemed too expensive to continue on. Have to figure the Manny show is done and Ryan seems to be wavering on whether or not to keep playing football even though Riders have said they want him back.

Lot of talented players out there looking for a home. What can Riders afford to pay is the question.

Gotta be tough for Jon Ryan to see his former peers down south making millions to punt. The Redskins punter just signed a 3 or 4 year $15,000,000 USD contract on the 26th. Jon never made that kind of money, but he made at minimum a million USD a year down there for many years.
