The Saskatchewan Roughriders announced today the re-signing of defensive end Dwan Epps and the free agent signing of quarterback Darian Durant to one-year plus option contracts. Financial details were not released.
Epps has spent the past two seasons with the Roughriders. The 29-year old ruptured his Achilles tendon during last yearâ€™s training camp and missed the entire season. In 2004, he dressed in six games for the Roughriders and picked up two quarterback sacks.
Durant spent time with the Baltimore Ravens last season after signing as a free agent. The 22-year old quarterback spent four seasons at the University of North Carolina where he set school records for career completion percentage (.605), career touchdowns (68), career passing yards (8,755), total career offence (9,630 yards), and career completions (701).
