The Saskatchewan Roughriders have signed American defensive lineman Nick Coe.

The six-foot-five, 285-pound defender was initially signed as an undrafted free agent by the New England Patriots in 2020. In September, he joined the Miami Dolphins’ practice roster in where he spent the entire 2020 season.

Coe spent four years at Auburn University where he dressed for 36 games. By the end of his time as a Tiger, the versatile pass-rusher was able to play every position on the defensive line as well as outside linebacker.

The 24-year-old native of North Carolina redshirted his first season then went on to make 71 career tackles, 21 tackles for loss, nine sacks, two force fumbles and one pass deflection over his next three.

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