The Saskatchewan Roughriders announced on Tuesday that they have signed their 2018 first-round pick Dakoda Shepley to the practice roster.

Selected fifth overall by the Riders, the national offensive lineman was signed by the New York Jets this year, but was cut by the NFL club at the end of training camp.

The team also added national offensive lineman Emmanuel Aduessi to the practice roster.

To make room for these two players, the team released national defensive back Tristan Doughlin and national fullback Oumar Toure.
