The Saskatchewan Roughriders have signed Canadian long snapper Jorgen Hus to a one-year contract extension for the 2021 season.

He was eligible to be free agent on February 9, 2021.

Hus has played in 81 career games for the Riders making 15 career special teams tackles and one defensive tackle. He is entering his sixth CFL season in 2021, all of which have been with Saskatchewan.

The 31-year-old Saskatoon native and University of Regina product was initially selected by the Edmonton Football Team in the 2013 CFL Draft, but the Riders acquired his rights prior to his 2015 signing. Before returning home to Saskatchewan, the six-foot-one, 230-pound Hus spent time in the NFL with the St. Louis Rams, Seattle Seahawks and Kansas City Chiefs.

Off the field, Hus is committed to the province he grew up in and works closely with the Red Cross and the Saskatchewan Roughrider Foundation.
