The Saskatchewan Roughriders have added a former star from the ACC.

Artavis Scott was signed by the team on Monday following four-year stint in the NFL with the Chargers, Colts, and Texans. The 26-year-old went unselected in the 2017 NFL Draft following a standout career at Clemson University.

Scott earned All-ACC honours for three consecutive seasons with the Tigers. He set a new team record for career receptions (245) for 2,458 yards and 19 touchdowns over 43 games, winning a National Championship in 2017.

The five-foot-ten, 193-pound target ran a 4.61 forty-yard dash at the 2017 NFL Combine along with a 4.49 shuttle, 7.19 three-cone drill, 31-inch vertical, nine-foot, eight-inch broad jump, and 13 reps on the bench press.
