The Saskatchewan Roughriders announced today they have signed import defensive tackle Robert Rose. As per club policy, financial details of the agreement were not released.
Rose (6’5” – 285) joins the green and white after opening the 2012 season with the Hamilton Tiger Cats where he appeared in eight games registering seven tackles.
After spending four years at Ohio State, the Cleveland native originally signed an undrafted free agent contract with the Seattle Seahawks before being released and joining the Miami Dolphins practice roster for the 2010 season. The three-year pro joined the Tiger Cats late in the 2011 season, appearing in three games registering eight tackles and one quarterback sack.
