The Saskatchewan Roughriders have had interest in the team’s quarterbacks from other CFL squads looking to acquire them via trade.
According to Riders radio play-by-play man Rod Pedersen, Riders head coach Chris Jones said that they’ve fielded offers regarding their stable of QBs but aren’t interested in moving any of them. Assistant general manager John Murphy added they finally have a stable 1-2 QB situation which affords them the luxury of not having to rush David Watford and B.J. Daniels.
Regina Leader-Post beat writer Murray McCormick reported Jones said that he has fielded some inquiries regarding the availability of Brandon Bridge, in particular. CFL teams are apparently interested in Bridge now that the Riders have Zach Collaros on the roster.
“It’s not even a question right now,’’ Jones said. “If you look around the league and you let everyone’s starter get hurt, you can see how well they will do. We have the good fortune of having a guy who last year came in as relief for Kevin Glenn on about eight or nine occasions and we won those ball games. We have a good problem.’’
The Riders re-signed Bridge to a one-year contract through the 2018 season in December and traded for Collaros in January while Watford inked a deal with the team last October and Daniels was brought in just before training camp.
