Breaking: Riders appear to have released Josh Bartel

According to the CFL Transaction list the Riders have quietly released punter Josh Bartel. 

The Wodonga, Austrailia native was a fan favorite for his fun personality and his "Aussie rules" style of kicking. He was on his second stint with the Riders and was in the final year of his contract extension that he signed in 2017.

With Bartel gone the only kicker on the roster is Brett Lauther, who is not known for his punting.

Obvious speculation is that the Riders will be looking at signing former NFL Punter and Regina born Jon Ryan to handle their punting duties.
