Rob Vanstone evaluates the Saskatchewan Roughriders’ additions over the first three days of the CFL’s free-agency period.
Courtney Stephen sounds like a guy who, if you told him to, would play quarterback. The Calgary Stampeders already have that covered, obviously. But where they need help is in the defensive secondary. How about corner, Courtney? Check. Or safety? Check. “Some of the best advice I’ve ever got was never put yourself in a box,” […]
