The Saskatchewan Roughriders have signed American linebacker Gary Johnson Jr. to their practice roster.
The six-foot-tall, 230-pound linebacker also attended 2019 train camp with the Washington Redskins, playing in two pre-season games in which he had three tackles.
In two years at the University of Texas, Johnson played in 26 games and recorded 150 tackles, eight-and-a-half tackles and three forced fumbles.
He was named to the 2018 Bednarik Award and Butkus Award watch lists and the second team All-Big 12.
The Alabama native was also a highly ranked prospect at Dodge City Community College.
