Pick traded to Riders for Darian Durant turns into Zach Collaros

Darian Durant has turned into Zach Collaros for the Saskatchewan Roughriders.

Durant’s rights were sent from the Riders to Montreal last January for a fourth-round pick in the 2017 CFL draft and second-rounder in 2018. That last selection was sent to Hamilton for Zach Collaros on Wednesday.

The two-time Grey Cup champion pivot threw for 3,233 yards, 15 touchdowns against 16 interceptions (second-most in the league) for the Als last season and he was benched multiple times. Durant spent 11 seasons with the Riders and finished with a 58-54 record in 113 starts.

Collaros is six years younger and took Hamilton to the Grey Cup in 2014. The 29-year-old has lost 12 straight starts and is 24-27 overall as a starter in his career, but some evaluators around the CFL believe he can still be a franchise calibre player.
