REGINA — Linebacker Darnell Sankey is on the move.
Sankey, who had a league-leading 97 tackles last season with the Calgary Stampeders, signed with the Saskatchewan Roughriders on Tuesday, the first day of CFL free agency.
The six-foot-one, 245-pound Sankey also had one special-teams tackle, one sack and one forced fumble last season.
Before coming to Canada, Sankey spent time with the NFL's Denver Broncos, Indianapolis Colts, Kansas City Chiefs, Baltimore Ravens and New Orleans Saints.
Saskatchewan also signed Canadian offensive lineman Josiah St. John to a contract extension. The six-foot-five, 305-pound St. John appeared in 14 regular-season games last season, making one start, as well as the West semifinal and division final.
