The Saskatchewan Roughriders have signed international defensive back Crezdon Butler to a one-year contract extension, keeping him with the team through 2019.          


Butler (6’1 – 191) signed with the Riders in June, 2017 after spending parts of seven seasons in the NFL, playing 46 career games.


Last season the 30-year-old Clemson product started 15 regular-season games for the Green and White and picked up 39 defensive tackles, four pass knockdowns, two quarterback sacks and a forced fumble.  


In the playoffs Butler added eight defensive tackles and one fumble recovery while starting the Eastern Semi-Final and Eastern Final.
