Today is one of the most action-packed days in the CFL off-season.

Milo avoids free agency, re-signs with Riders

One player returning to the 2013 Grey Cup champion Roughriders is kicker Chris Milo.

The 27-year-old was one of the most accurate kickers in 2013, finishing second in the CFL after hitting 46 of 52 field goals (88.5 per cent).

Milo, a non-import from Laval University, will be entering his fourth season with the Riders.
