The Roughriders also cut quarterback Bryan Bennett, who showed promise at training camp, but struggled in the Roughriders preseason games.
However, Marquise Williams, who joined the team several days into camp, will remain with the team. Williams caught the attention of his coaches and teammates for the extra work he put into learning the playbook. He was often spotted working by himself on the field after practice.
I just want to thank God for giving me the opportunity to follow my dreams as a @sskroughriders. Excited to be apart of the 2017 season!!!
Running back Anthony Allen expressed his displeasure with being cut after dropping everything to attend camp. The tailback says he quit his job and missed his daughter’s graduation to come to Saskatchewan.
