The Zach Collaros era is over in Riderville. The Saskatchewan Roughriders have announced that they have traded Collaros to the Toronto Argonauts for a conditional 2020 4th round draft choice. The pick can become a 2nd round pick depending on playing time and contract extension clauses. Collaros moves to Toronto after 2 seasons in Saskatchewan where he started 15 games and had a 10 – 5 record as a starter. He has battled through injuries since tearing his ACL in the middle of the 2015 season while with the Hamilton Tiger-Cats. Concussion issues lead to missing 4 games in 2018 and after rehabbing during the off-season Collaros was knocked out of the first game of the 2019 season. With this move, the Riders will clear about 90,000 + playtime bonuses in cap space as we get closer to NFL cuts being avialable.
With this move, the Riders will clear about 90,000 in cap space as we get closer to NFL cuts being made available, not inluding the cost of a 3rd string QB.
