The Saskatchewan Roughriders announced today they have released import defensive back Omarr Morgan.

“We thank Omarr for his years of service to the team and the tremendous leadership he provided on the field and in the locker room,? stated Vice-President of Football Operations Ken Miller. “We will miss his day-to-day contributions and wish him all the best.?

The veteran has spent a decade with the Green and White and played in 174 regular season games. In that time he has amassed 556 defensive tackles, 36 special teams tackles, 26 interceptions for 399 yards and 10 fumble recoveries.

*The Roughriders also announced they released defensive back Willie Byrd from the roster

Any thoughts?

...you guys have 10 DBs on your roster....just saying...

I must say the name Omarr Morgan and the CFL go hand in hand. His name will be missed.

It really sucks that the one year he left the Riders, they won the Grey Cup.

He was a true professional, he will be missed on the Riders.

Sounds like the Riders asked him to retire but he wants to continue playing and asked for his release, so the Riders honoured his request. (source: Rider Rumblings- Regina Leader Post Website)

Personally I think he was one of the best Quarterback of the defense around the league. A true leader, and a great tandem with Eddie Davis both of those guys will be missed. Only wish he could have Retired as a Roughrider, but best of luck to him wherever he is able to play this year.
