2019 success kept Riders’ Kyran Moore from exploring free agency

Saskatchewan Roughrider fans were happy to hear earlier this week, that the team had secured receiver Kyran Moore for another season.

Moore had a break out year in 2019, with six touchdowns and 996 receiving yards in the regular season, along with 119 yards in the western final against Winnipeg.

Moore joined the SportsCage on Thursday and said if the NFL didn’t pan out, he had no desire to explore CFL free agency, and was committed to Riderville.

“I love the team that we have, with Cody (Fajardo) and the rest of the guys, and of course Jeremy (O’Day) and coach Dicky (Craig Dickenson) and the whole organization and of course the fans, I had a great experience my first full year, so I was more than ready to come back and try it again,” Moore said.

Moore said he feels like as much as he’s happy with his success of 2019, he knows he can continue to grow and build off that.

“Yes I came in 2018 and then finally had my first full year last season, so now I feel like it was just the beginning.”

‘It was a good season (2019),” Moore added. “We clinched first place in the west, I feel like I had a good season, it wasn’t my best, but overall yeah I feel like 2019 was a good year,” Moore said.

If all goes according to planned, the Riders will open the 2021 regular season June 12th in Edmonton.
