Eric Tillman will announce at a 1:00pm press conference that the Saskatchewan Roughriders have acquired Henry Burris from the Calgary Stampeders. The Riders will send Calgary Lineman Gene Makowsky, Linebacker Maurice Lloyd, and third string Quarterback Steven Jyles.
A Rider insider was quoting Tillman as saying you need to have a starting Quarterback in the CFL to win and after Joseph was traded to Toronto, Tillman had to fill those needs. Burris was seen last night at the Regina Airport and was quoted as saying he is excited about re-establishing himself with the Rider Nation.[url=http://news.google.ca/news?hl=en&resnum=0&q=april+fools&um=1&ie=UTF-8&sa=X&oi=news_result&resnum=4&ct=title]http://news.google.ca/news?hl=en&resnum ... 4&ct=title[/url]
