Canadian LB Sam Hurl signs with Riders

The Saskatchewan Roughriders have signed Canadian linebacker Sam Hurl.

The 27-year-old Hurl started all 18 games for the Winnipeg Blue Bombers last season registering 65 tackles and a sack. Over his six CFL seasons, Hurl has played in 90 games making 46 starts. Hurl started his CFL career with the Riders and spent three seasons in Regina after being draft in the second round of the 2012 draft.

The Riders start Canadian Henoc Muamba in the middle so Hurl makes sense from a ratio perspective.
