riders lose 1st round pick.
It's been a tough week to be a fan of the Saskatchewan Roughriders.
Two days after Kent Austin resigned as head coach, TSN has learned the Roughriders have exceeded the $4.05 million salary cap and must forfeit their first round pick in this year's Canadian College Draft.
The Montreal Alouettes were also found in violation of the salary cap and have lost their first round pick.
Ironically, the Roughriders first round pick belongs to the Alouettes so league officials have yet to make an official ruling on the penalties for both teams.
The order of selection for the Canadian College Draft has yet to be announced.
