The Saskatchewan Roughriders have signed American wide receiver Jester Weah. 

The six-foot-three, 209-pound target returns to the Riders after attending 2022 training camp with the team. He saw action in both preseason games, totalling three catches for 23 yards and a touchdown.  

The Wisconsin native signed with the Houston Texans as an undrafted free agent in 2018 and went on to spend time on the practice rosters of the Washington Commanders and the Chicago Bears. As a member of the Commanders, he dressed for one regular season game.   

Collegiately, Weah spent five seasons at the University of Pittsburgh from 2013 to 2017. In 25 games, the former Panther recorded 77 catches for 1566 yards and 14 touchdowns while averaging 20.3 yards per reception.

In addition to his accomplishments on the field, Weah was voted a team captain by his teammates and was selected to play in the 2018 East-West Shrine Game.
