Despite many departures on the field this off-season has been one filled with contract extensions for the Saskatchewan Roughriders.
Head Coach Corey Chamblin and General Manager Brendan Taman have both signed on the line and will remain in Riderville through the 2017 season. The team is also working hard towards getting franchise quarterback Darian Durant signed to a long term contract extension as well.
Free agent frenzy is well underway in the men's curling world, so to speak.
While none of the players are actually under contract with their team's changes are pretty common; especially after an Olympic year as teams will begin to gear up for another run at the next Winter Olympics in 2018 in South Korea.
In what's almost become an annual tradition the Saskatchewan Roughriders have locked up their General Manager for a few more years.
The Green and White announced Wednesday that they've agreed to terms on an extension with GM Brendan Taman that will see him stay in Riderville through the 2017 season. The new deal brings Taman in line with his Head Coach Corey Chamblin who was also extended through 2017 earlier this off-season.

For Graham DeLaet, golf’s first major will be extra special for him.

Smith followed Weston Dressler's high school and collegiate career in North Dakota as well as his accomplishments with the Saskatchewan Roughriders.
And it's hard not to see the comprables. 5'7, 175lbs, born and raised in North Dakota, fast, ellusive, and can catch a football. Outside the obvious professional accomplishments, the only difference appears to be their school.
