Sinorice Moss is looking to kick-start his football career in the CFL.

The receiver who earned a Super Bowl ring with the 2007 New York Giants signed was among three import players to agree to terms with the Saskatchewan Roughriders on Tuesday. The others were offensive lineman Johan Asiata and linebacker Daniel Sheffield.

The five-foot-eight, 185-pound Moss was a second-round pick (44th overall) of the Giants in the 2006 NFL draft. The Miami native spent five seasons with New York, registering 39 catches for 421 yards and three touchdowns.

Moss played his college football at Miami, finishing with 68 receptions for 1,106 yards and nine touchdowns.

The six-foot-four, 300-pound Asiata spent time the last three seasons on the Chicago Bears practice squad after his college career at the University of Nevada-Las Vegas.

The six-foot-four, 210-pound Sheffield played three seasons at Troy University, lining up at safety and linebacker. He accumulated 147 career defensive tackles, 2.5 sacks and one interception.

The Riders also released import receiver Ernie Wheelwright on Tuesday.
