The Saskatchewan Roughriders have made news on the opening day of free agency, but to release players rather than signing them.
The Riders announced they have released Offensive Lineman Derek Dennis, as well as Antonio Longino and Linebacker Glenn Love.
Dennis was the most outstanding lineman in 2016 with the Calgary Stampeders, after coming over to the Green and White on the opening day of CFL Free Agency in 2017.
Dennis played 15 games for the Riders, including both playoff games for the Green and White.
Meanwhile, Antonio Longino played in five games for the Riders in 2017, making eight tackles on defence, and another three on special teams in his only season with the Riders.
Glenn Love is a six-year CFL veteran who played 11 games for the Riders, making 17 special teams tackles in his only season with Saskatchewan.
The Riders losses didn’t stop there, as Nic Demski has signed with the Winnipeg Blue Bombers.
