The Saskatchewan Roughriders have signed American offensive lineman Terran Vaughnto a contract extension.

The 27-year-old missed the 2021 season with a shoulder injury. The six-foot-three, 305-pound Vaughn returns to the Riders for the 2022 season. He was scheduled to become a free agent on February 8.

Vaughn initially signed with the green and white in September 2017, making his CFL debut on June 15, 2018, playing in seven games.

Vaughn played in a total 46 games as Lumberjack, earning a starting position as freshman. In 2014 he was an All-Southland Conference honourable mention.
