Former Riders defensive end Shawn Lemon slams team in Tweet (UPDATED)

Former Saskatchewan Roughriders defensive end Shawn Lemon fired a shot at his former team Tuesday after they signed free agent offensive lineman Derek Dennis on the first day of CFL free agency.

Lemon was one of several big name signing by the Riders in the opening days of free agency last season but things quickly soured and he was ultimately traded to the Toronto Argonauts where he played in 16 games this season with Toronto registering 14 sacks and five forced fumbles, both of which tied him for second in the league. He signed a contract extension with the club after the season.

It’s not the first time (or likely the last) Lemon has stirred the pot on social media. He was also salty about his departure from the Ottawa Redblacks, getting into a Twtiter spat with general manager Marcel Desjardins and recently bet Ticat Simoni Lawrence $2,000 the Argos – currently without a head coach or general manager – would make the playoffs this season.

Of course, he’s hardly the only one taking shots at Saskatchewan…

UPDATE: Dennis has fired back…
