Chad Owens headed to the Riders

Chad Owens is headed to the prairies.

The team announced Wednesday that it had signed the 35-year-old receiver. It’s reportedly a two-year deal.

Owens has played seven seasons in the CFL, the five of those with the Argos. His career numbers are Hall-of-Fame worthy, including a 2012 season that saw him set a league record for all-purpose yards and earn the CFL’s Most Outstanding Player award.

Owens had 58 catches for 808 yards before breaking a bone in his foot in a September game against Montreal and missing the remainder of the season.

The news was first reported by TSN’s Matthew Scianitti.
