The Saskatchewan Roughriders made a pair of roster moves on Monday. Following news that the team signed kicker Brett Lauther to a three-year extension, the Roughriders made it official with offensive lineman Logan Ferland on a two-year contract.
The 26-year-old Roughrider inked the contract coming off a season where he played all 18 games at right guard, filling in admirably at the tackle position in a couple games as well. Ferland's 2023 season helped him earn his second straight Roughriders’ Most Outstanding Lineman award.
The Kindersley born, Melfort graduate, made the Roughriders as a territorial junior in 2019 as a member of the Regina Thunder. After the CFL sat idle in 2020 due to the pandemic, Ferland's rookie season in 2021 saw him log the most snaps of any player on the team, and during his sophomore season, Ferland was part of a Roughriders unit that helped running backs Jamal Morrow and Frankie Hickson each hit 500+ yards.
Ferland visited Kindersley with the Rider Reading program in March 2023, and has been nothing short of a great ambassador for the Roughriders within the west-central region. With two more years committed to the green-and-white, there will likely be more to come.
