Riders sign former 2nd round pick in NFL draft

The Riders have added another American to their offensive line. One who comes with a tremendous resume.

Monday the team announced the signing of tackle Cyrus Kouandjio. The 26 year old was a second-round pick of the NFL’s Buffalo Bills in 2014.

Kouandjio spent five seasons in the NFL with the Bills, Broncos and briefly the Lions. He played 30 games in total, most of them in his first two seasons with the Bills.

Kouandjio was a member of the Alabama Crimson Tide team that won back-to-back national championships in 2012 & 2013. He declared for the 2014 NFL draft after his junior season.

He will join Terran Vaughn, Takoby Cofield, Cameron Jefferson, Lanard Bonner and Devon Johnson as American offensive lineman in Riders camp.
