The Saskatchewan Roughriders have signed former Michigan defensive back Jeremy Clark.

Clark played five games with the XFL’s Seattle Dragons in 2020, making 10 tackles, two tackles for loss, one interception, and three pass deflections. Prior to playing in the XFL, Clark was a sixth-round draft pick of the New York Jets, where he spent time on both the active roster and practice roster in 2018 and 2019, appearing in two games.

The 26-year-old Kentucky native played five collegiate seasons at the University of Michigan, where he made 49 tackles, nine pass breakups, and three interceptions over 36 games. He was in training camp with the Riders earlier this year but was released.

Clark will be moved to Saskatchewan’s suspended list while he completes his COVID-19 quarantine.
