Saskatchewan Roughrider head coach Ken Miller announced today the team has re-signed non-import offensive linemen Chris Best and non-import defensive lineman Luc Mullinder to new contracts. Both players were set to become free agents.
Best dressed in all 18 regular season games for the Riders this season. He started in 12 regular season games, the West Final and the Grey Cup game at left guard. The 26-year old Waterloo product has dressed in 27 regular season games for the Green and White and was originally drafted by Saskatchewan fourth overall in the 2005 CFL Canadian Draft.
Mullinder dressed in all 18 regular season games, the West Final and the Grey Cup and was regularly rotated in the defensive line. He finished the season with 20 defensive tackles, two tackles for a loss and two quarterback sacks. In six seasons with the Riders, Mullinder has dressed in 88 regular season games and has recorded 56 defensive tackles, five tackles for a loss and ten quarterback sacks.
“I am very happy to have Chris and Luc re-signed for next season,” stated Miller. “Chris has emerged into a quality starting offensive lineman and could be a fixture on the Riders line for years to come. Luc had another very solid season and has become very valuable to us with his ability to play any position on the defensive line.”
