The Saskatchewan Roughriders have released American offensive lineman Travis Bond, per sources.

Bond spent training camp with the Riders but didn’t impress enough to earn a roster spot. He was signed by the green and white in free agency to a one-year deal which included a chunk of signing bonus money between $20,000 and $30,000.

The 27-year-old started 16 games for the Winnipeg Blue Bombers last season and he was a CFL all-star at guard in 2016. Bond has tremendous size at 6-foot-7, 360 pounds.

Bond was a seventh-round pick, 214th overall by the Vikings in 2013. He spent parts of two NFL seasons with Minnesota, Carolina and St. Louis playing in two games.
