Huge changes in Riderville.

Post by Sir Purrcival » Tue Dec 15, 2015 8:35 pm

It has been about a week since Chris Jones assumed the title of Coach/GM in Saskatchewan and today he decided to release a few players. ... ders-cuts/

REGINA — It hasn’t taken Chris Jones long to make his mark on the Saskatchewan Roughriders. One week after being hired as the team’s VP of Football Operations, GM and head coach, Jones and the Riders parted ways with mainstays S Tyron Brackenridge, RB Anthony Allen, DB Macho Harris and DB Terrell Maze. Brackenridge, Allen and Maze were scheduled to become free agents in February.

The team also announced the release of:

• International defensive back Weldon Brown
• International defensive back Marshay Green
• National linebacker Nathan Kanya
• National defensive back Hugo Lopez
• National fullback Scott McHenry
• International defensive back Junior Mertile
• National linebacker Kyle Norris
• International receiver Jamel Richardson
• International defensive lineman Cameron Sheffield
• International quarterback Blake Sims
• International receiver Taj Smith
• International running back Chad Spann
• International defensive back Alex Suber
• International defensive lineman Derek Walker
• National linebacker Ryan Wellman
By my count that is 19 players. I'm wondering if that is some kind of record. If one ever questioned how nasty this business is, seeing this many people out of a job 10 days before Christmas is a sure reminder that football doesn't take holidays.

Now what happens to coaching staff? Is Jacques Chapedaleine far behind. Rumour has it that he and his son have cleared out their offices.
Lest We Forget!
