Riderville Roundup – May 19

We are a week into Training Camp and it’s just about time to BRING EM OUT!! Can you believe that our Riders take the field TOMORROW afternoon against the Winnipeg Blue Bombers?? I can’t wait to get into Mosaic Stadium, see some football friends I haven’t seen in a few months and get my first glimpse at the 2024 Saskatchewan Roughriders! LET’S. GO!!

What am I watching for in tomorrow’s game? A few things, actually. Unlike last year, I don’t care about a preseason win, but I did give my Top 5 list earlier this week.


We had some roster moves for the green and white over the last week:

Global DL Tyrone Taleni put on the Retired List, despite JUST being drafted in this year’s Global Draft.

Canadian OL Daniel Johnson (5th round Draft Pick) was signed.

OL D’Mitri Emmanuel was moved to the Suspended List.

OL Ryan Berta (Canadian), DB Cole Coleman, RB Jerrion Ealy, DL Roman Lee-Harrison, WR Braydon Johnson, DB Jamar Johnson, LB/DB Mark McLaurin and WR Kendall Watson were all released this past week


With the addition of Emmanuel to the Suspended List, that now puts more than half the Americans brought in to compete for the Left Tackle spot on the Suspended List. I think Trevor Reid has the upper hand on the spot, but the competition is significantly smaller than it was originally anticipated to be.


On Saturday, the Riders had their annual Green and White Day in Saskatoon. With their game just a couple of days later, things were a bit quieter this year. It was more of a laid back practice as opposed to having their traditional “game”. But with how energetic it sounds like the practices at Training Camp have been so far, these guys will be ready to put the pads on and HIT someone tomorrow. I can’t wait!
