The Saskatchewan Roughriders have signed American offensive lineman Jordan Tucker, the team announced on Monday.

The six-foot-six, 340-pound blocker played four collegiate seasons at the University of North Carolina (2018-21), dressing for 45 games and making 35 starts.

The native of Roswell, Ga. made nine starts at right tackle in 2021 and helped the team average 537.3 total yards per game, which led the ACC and set a new school record. Following his senior season, Tucker participated in the NFLPA Collegiate Bowl.

The 23-year-old went unselected in the 2022 NFL Draft but signed with the Pittsburgh Steelers as an undrafted free agent. He attended training camp with the team but was released near its conclusion.
