REGINA — The Saskatchewan Roughriders have signed American running back Shaquille Cooper.
Cooper (five-foot-10, 190 pounds) rejoins the Riders after spending 2022 training camp with the Green and White. He saw action in both pre-season games, recording five carries for eight yards, one catch for seven yards and returning three kickoffs for 77 yards.
Shaq Cooper's jaw dropping pre-season output of five carries for an average of 1.6 yds per carry and one catch for 7 yds must've caught SOMEBODY'S attention... either that or it's the fact that he's still upright that matters the most.
Maybe Cooper will be useful as a special teamer (3 pre-season kickoffs returned for a total of 77 yds).
