Roughriders add quarterbacks G.J. Kinne, Bryant Moniz
Riders now have 5 quarterbacks on their roster
The Saskatchewan Roughriders answered some questions about their quarterback depth on Saturday.
After making their final cuts following the pre-season, the Riders only had two quarterbacks — Darian Durant and B.J. Coleman — on their active roster. Newcomer Phillip Sims is on the six-game injured list.
The team has now added two more pivots, G.J. Kinne and Bryant Moniz.
- Saskatchewan Roughriders report $4.3M deficit
- Roughriders sign former Calgary defensive back Buddy Jackson
- Rider coach Chris Jones looking for the silver lining after stormy pre-season
Kinne spent time with the NFL's New York Jets, Philadelphia Eagles and New York Giants between April 2012 and May 2016. He also spent a week of the 2016 CFL pre-season with the Calgary Stampeders.
The six-foot-two-inch University of Tulsa product also spent time in the United Football League and the Arena Football League.
Moniz spent the past two seasons with the Calgary Stampeders, and was used primarily for rushing the ball.
The 27-year-old man scored five rushing touchdowns last season, while added one through the air. Moniz only attempted four passes with Calgary last season.
