The Saskatchewan Roughriders have announced national defensive back Jeff Hecht has re-signed with the club after becoming a free agent last month.
The Edmonton native was originally acquired by the Green and White in an August, 2016 trade with the Calgary Stampeders.
The 31-year-old Saint Mary’s product entered the league in 2011 when he signed as an undrafted free agent with the Montreal Alouettes.
Hecht joined the Stampeders in 2012 where he remained until joining the Riders.
Through 81 career regular-season games, Hecht has registered 57 defensive tackles, 38 special-teams tackles, three tackles for loss and one interception. He also played in two Grey Cup championships, winning with the Stampeders in 2014.
