American defensive lineman Caleb Sanders and American offensive linemen Trevor Reid and Jordan Tucker.

Sanders (6’1-287) originally signed with the Roughriders in September. He saw action in one game and made two tackles.

The Iowa native played five collegiate seasons (2018-22) with the South Dakota State University. In the 2022 season, Sanders was named a team captain and earned Associated Press FCS All-America First-Team honours while helping the Jackrabbits win the 2022 NCAA Division 1 Football Championship.

Reid (6’5-307) signed with the Philadelphia Eagles as an undrafted free agent earlier this summer. After attending rookie camp with the Eagles, he would join the Atlanta Falcons for training camp.

For three seasons (2019-22), the Georgia native played with the University of Louisville. Prior to his time as a Cardinal, Reid spent two collegiate seasons (2018-19) at Georgia Military College, where he was named a NJCAA First-Team All-American in 2019.

Tucker (6’6-340) attended training camp with the Roughriders before he was injured. The team released him, before Tucker rejoined the team. Last year, the 24-year-old signed as undrafted free agent with the Pittsburgh Steelers and attended training camp with the team.

Tucker played four seasons (2018-21) at the University of North Carolina, mostly at right tackle.
