Saskatchewan Roughriders sign Canadian running back Daryl Stephenson

REGINA - It didn't take Daryl Stephenson long to land with another CFL team.

The former Hec Crighton Trophy-winning running back signed Wednesday with the Saskatchewan Roughriders after being released earlier this week by the Hamilton Tiger-Cats.

The six-foot-two, 225-pound native of London, Ont., spent two seasons with Hamilton.

The six-year CFL veteran was originally selected in the third round, No. 15 overall, by Winnipeg in the 2008 CFL draft after playing collegiately at the University of Windsor.

The Riders also released receiver Jonelle Tolbert.
