The Saskatchewan Roughriders dipped into the free agent market again on Wednesday as they signed national receiver Cory Watson to a one-year contract.

Watson is an eight-year CFL veteran, who has played for Winnipeg, Edmonton and B.C. He won the Grey Cup with the Eskimos in 2015.

Last season with the Lions, the 34-year-old collected 406 receiving yards and three touchdowns in 18 regular-season games.

Watson has 328 career receptions for 3,737 yards and 16 touchdowns.

The Riders also lost defensive lineman Tobi Antigha, who signed with the Toronto Argonauts on Wednesday. Antigha had 21 tackles, two sacks, and three interceptions last season with Saskatchewan.
