The Saskatchewan Roughriders have signed Canadian receiver Justin McInnis to a one-year contract extension through the 2022 season.

The six-foot-five, 205-pound McInnis was selected by the Riders in the first round, sixth overall during 2019 CFL Draft.

The 25-year-old McInnis played six games in 2021 and made five receptions for 83 yards. In his rookie season, he played 14 games and made 10 receptions for 149 yards and 14.9-yard average per catch. That same season the Quebec native made a crucial 29-yard reception in Week 21 versus the Elks to help the green and white secure first place in the division for the first time since 2009.

McInnis spent three NCAA seasons (2016-2018) at Arkansas State University hauling in 115 catches for 1,577 yards and 10 majors. In 2018, he was second on the team with 56 receptions for 694 yards and six touchdowns. Prior to Arkansas State, McInnis attended junior college at Dodge City. In his freshman season he made 49 receptions for 964 yards and seven touchdowns.
