Riders’ Chris Jones attends pro day for Saskatchewan neg list QB

Riders vice president of football operations, general manager and head coach Chris Jones attended the pro day of former University of Missouri and Eastern Kentucky quarterback Maty Mauk on Monday.

The 23-year-old pivot was added to the Riders’ negotiation list on April 18, 2016.

Mauk started 22 games over three seasons at Missouri earning a 17-5 record. He took over the starting job in 2014 after current Eskimos quarterback James Franklin completed his senior season in 2013. As a Tiger the Kenton, OH native threw for 4,373 yards, 42 touchdowns and 19 interceptions with a 52.1 completion rate. He rushed 185 times for 737 yards and four touchdowns on the ground.

But in January 2016, Mauk was dismissed from Missouri for violating teams rules after a video of him snorting “a white substance” was posted to social media. A teammate claimed the video was several years old and Mauk posted a letter on his Twitter feed.

Mauk transferred to Eastern Kentucky where he played in two games, throwing for 303 yards one touchdown and two interceptions with a 53.8 completion rate last year.

    If you turn over enough stones, eventually you will find a stoner!

  2. Well, this makes up for not being able to land Manziel….

  3. Bob knows. // April 18, 2017 at 2:19 pm //

    Jones sure knows how to pick quality (snort, snort) players.

    Disgraced attracts disgraced I guess.

    Don’t worry though this is all part of the mad genus’s master plan.

    Using 2 money bag symbols in your facebook post says a lot about this guy IMO.

  5. Antlerman // April 18, 2017 at 3:32 pm //

    Give the kid a break everybody makes mistakes ist what you learn from it that count.

    • mrnehnehincognito // April 18, 2017 at 3:38 pm //

      That’s true Antlerman but again look at the money bags in his post. Does that not suggest his mind set and attitude?

      • Yeah! Who does this kid think he is, trying to make money after university! Just because every other graduate tries to land the best paying job they can doesn’t mean that this young man should be able to!

        • mrnehnehincognito // April 18, 2017 at 4:37 pm //

          Of course, it’s the objective of every one to make money! Let me ask you grain when you applied for your first job under objective did you put dollar signs? If you are reading through resumes and saw dollar signs what would be your first impression of the individual?
          I’ve got a big glass of green Kool Aid for you grain 😉

    Who took the picture I wonder?
    Someone form Chris Jones promotions Inc?

  7. Antlerman // April 18, 2017 at 7:06 pm //

    The guy is 23 yrs old Man your such a negative person
    You should try the half full glass of water instead of the half empty one it will likely taste better

    • Antlerman – dont waste your time on mrnenehincognito/Stampman. He is already a lost cause.

      • mrnehnehincognito // April 18, 2017 at 9:54 pm //

        I don’t believe I ever used stampman. It was stampland.
        Do you think this is a wise player to spend this much time on?

        • Sorry about that chief – Stampman was probably going to be your next username anyway after you wore out your current one. Better than horsie-land…

    • mrnehnehincognito // April 18, 2017 at 9:52 pm //

      Not negative at all just looking at the facts and past history with players in these types of situations. I’m a realist.

      • No your not a realist your a Rider hater and that is all you will ever be, how does it feel to be owned by a team you hate so much stumpland….don’t try to say your not owned by them because the hate/passion you write about on here is all about the Riders not anything else bud…Time for you to fess up and be the realist you claim to be!!!

        • mrnehnehincognito // April 19, 2017 at 2:00 pm //

          OH YES OH YES . I ADMIT IT!……
          Believe champ I bleed read and white. As I write this I’m looking at my shelf with a collection of real game worn stamps helmets. Including Fred Bennett’s Grey Cup worn helmet from 2014 championship team!

  8. Is this news? We already have Glenn, Young, Bennett, Bridge & Kinne signed & Jones is in town posing with yet another QB, unlikely to see the light of day in Regina. Is there a point here outside of showing how busy Mr. Jones is AGAIN this off-season? All this activity & the oddsmakers are rating Riders 2nd last again – guess they’re not impressed.

  9. Scottsask // April 19, 2017 at 10:19 am //

    Horse land has a nice ring to it, I like it. Also the Roughriders should give the name back to Ottawa and change to the Greenwhites, think of all the merchandise they could sell….still more than the entire league combined.

  10. Scottsask // April 19, 2017 at 10:20 am //

    Sorry, that was supposed to say Horsieland, I still love it.

    • mrnehnehincognito // April 19, 2017 at 1:23 pm //

      Fine horsieland it will be. I’ll provide Rider fans whatever name they want. It’s the least I can do to provide you with a little happiness prior to your teams 2017 season of being slaughtered and humiliated.
      Instead of the barber chair you should have put in a psychiatrists couch. There will be much trauma ,drama,depression in that locker room before long. Between the bad team and bad attitudes of some of the characters Jones seems to want to have play for him it’s inevitable.

      • Are you mentally challenged? Just asking cause you have to be the most ignorant person on this site. Why don’t you go post your hate somewhere else?

        • mrnehnehincognito // April 19, 2017 at 2:02 pm //

          Or you could just ignore it and not comment 🙂
          Have a nice day Heather

        • Ladd Law // April 24, 2017 at 3:23 pm //

          Save your breath. You’re writing about a closet dwelling lonely boy with no friends who hates all things Riders. Mostly jealousy, as it is the best form of flattery.

  11. mrnehnehincognito // April 19, 2017 at 3:29 pm //

    Just read a great article on CFL site about stamps Grey Cup loss. Mitchell said it’s like spinach to Popeye. Be afraid Rider fans,be very very afraid. It’s coming very soon.

    • Why don’t you go post on that article then why come back here to spew your spinach, oh right cause no one cares about the stump stories so you have to come back to this page to try and stir the pot….lmao What a useless organization they are!!!! Typical Alberta mentality, not much different than deadmonton.

      • mrnehnehincognito // April 19, 2017 at 5:31 pm //

        yeah stamps are so useless. They are terrible.

      • mrnehnehincognito // April 19, 2017 at 5:44 pm //

        oske the fact is Calgary and Edmonton don’t create the news the riders do these days. They are stable, professional organizations with little that is news worthy except that BLM is becoming a flames fan. The Riders under Jones have become the White House under Trump providing nothing juicy story after juicy. Sorry its true

  12. Many people experiment with drugs and it does not mean the person has an addiction problem. Nor does it mean that they are a bad football player. Sure if he continues than there is a problem. If YOU have taken anything in the past including alcolhol or tobacco than give your own head a shake.
    There are far more health issue related to those addictive substances than anything else.
    People I glass houses should not throw stones!

    • mrnehnehincognito // April 19, 2017 at 6:56 pm //

      That is all true Jay but there are 2 things to consider here.
      1)- If you are an elite NCAA QB you are foolish to put yourself in a position where this could be recorded and used against you.
      20- This speaks to an overall trend to the type of players Jones is recruiting. It seems all that matters is raw talent nothing about character and the person. In pro football this is just as important.
