Saskatchewan Roughrider General Manager/Vice President of Football Operations Eric Tillman announced today they have acquired non-import defensive back Leron Mitchell from the Toronto Argonauts. In return, the Argos will receive import running back Jamal Robertson.
Mitchell (6’1 – 200 lbs) has spent the past two seasons with the Argonauts. He has played in 29 regular season games and three playoff games. He recorded 13 special teams tackles and three fumble recoveries last season. He was originally drafted in the second round (12th overall) in the 2006 Canadian Draft.
"We're very pleased to get Leron,? stated Tillman. “He's a young, high character guy who has already proven to be a very good special teams player. At 25, we believe Leron has a bright future, and, as an organization, we certainly place a premium on quality young Canadians."
Didn't we just get Robertson. I actually thought he would make the roster. Also, has anyone heard of Leron Mitchall? Is he any good? I have never heard of him.
Anyways, thoughts on the trade?
