The Saskatchewan Roughriders have signed non-import kicker Sandro DeAngelis and import defensive lineman Jay Alford.

Financial details of the agreements announced Monday were not released.

The five-foot-nine, 195-pound DeAngelis is a five time West Division all-star, three time CFL all-star and was named Most Outstanding Canadian of the 2008 Grey Cup.

The Niagara Falls, Ont., native joined the Calgary Stampeders in 2005, before signing with Hamilton for the 2010 season and most recently the Montreal Alouettes for 2011.

The six-foot-three, 304-pound Alford returns to the Roughriders after attending training camp in Regina but failing to make roster.

Alford won the 2011 UFL Championship with the Virginia Destroyers. Prior to that, he spent three seasons in the NFL including the 2007-08 season in which he won the Super Bowl with the New York Giants.
