The Saskatchewan Roughriders have released American defensive back Blace Brown, who started nine games at cornerback for the team in 2021.

The 26-year-old recorded 22 total tackles, one interception, and one forced fumble last year before completing a stint on the six-game injured list. He was replaced by Jeremy Clark, who remains on the roster.

Other notable names who were released include veteran CFL running back Shaq Cooper, defensive back AJ Hendy, and second-round 2022 CFL Draft pick Zack Fry, who is returning for this final year of U Sports eligibility at Western. Click here for a complete list of the moves.
