The 31 year old, who was released in December, played 75 games for the club in five seasons with the team
Brackenridge will retire after registering 254 defensive tackles, 18 special teams tackles, 10 interceptions, and four quarterback sacks – on his way to picking up CFL All-Star selections in 2013 and 2014.
He won his first Grey Cup in 2013 with the Roughriders.
“The decision to retire from the game I love is truly bittersweet,” noted Brackenridge. “I have been blessed to be able to play this game for the past ten years, including five wonderful years with the Roughriders. I’m content with the decision and look forward to what lies ahead.”
“I would like to give a special thanks to the CFL and particularly the Saskatchewan Roughriders organization,” added Brackenridge. “Last but not least, I want to send a special thanks to the amazing Rider Nation. Thank you all for making Saskatchewan my home away from home.”
