The Saskatchewan Roughriders have signed centre Dan Clark to a two-year contract extension through the 2021 season. 

Clark played at a high level in 2019 and earned CFL all-star honours for the first time in his eight year CFL career.

He was named the Roughriders Most Outstanding Lineman. The 31-year-old was a stalwart on an offensive line that saw many changes due to injury, but went on to allow just 37 sacks. The offensive line also opened up holes for the run game which averaged 112.8 yards per game for a total of 2,030 yards and a league-high 26 rushing touchdowns.

After overcoming injuries from a serious car accident before training camp, Clark played every game this season, including his 100th career game on July 27 against the B.C. Lions.

Clark, who was born and raised in Regina, initially joined the Riders as a territorial junior in 2009. He’s played 112 career regular season games, six playoff games and the 2013 Grey Cup with the green and white after making his pro debut August 19, 2012.

Clark has become a mainstay along the Riders’ offensive line and is revered around the city and province of Saskatchewan.
