The Saskatchewan Roughriders have released American offensive lineman Na’Ty Rodgers.

The 27-year-old started all nine games for the Riders at right tackle this season as part of an offensive line that has allowed a league-worst 32 sacks. He was penalized for holding two times in Saskatchewan’s 34-23 victory over the Edmonton Elks this past week and was also flagged for objectionable conduct.

The six-foot-five, 305-pound blocker signed with Saskatchewan in January with three years of previous CFL experience. He played 10 games with the Montreal Alouettes in 2018 and spent the 2019 season on the practice roster with the Winnipeg Blue Bombers.

Rodgers was a member of the Ottawa Redblacks in 2021 and made four starts at right tackle. The Washington native also spent time with the Seattle Dragons and Tampa Bay Vipers of the XFL.

The Riders also released American receiver Jakob Prall, who started six games at slotback to start the season. He made nine catches for 99 yards over those outings.
