Riders Trade Cory Watson To Eskimos

The Saskatchewan Roughriders announced today that they have acquired the rights to national long snapper Jorgen Hus and a third round selection in the 2016 CFL Draft from the Edmonton Eskimos. In exchange the Riders have sent national wide receiver Cory Watson and a second round selection in the 2016 CFL Draft to the Eskimos.

Hus was originally selected by the Eskimos in the fourth round (31st overall) of the 2013 CFL Draft. The Saskatoon native and University of Regina product has spent time with the NFL’s St. Louis Rams, Seattle Seahawks and Kansas City Chiefs over the last two seasons.    

To Saskatchewan:
National LS Jorgen Hus
3rd round selection in 2016 CFL Draft

To Edmonton:
National WR Cory Watson
2nd round selection in 2016 CFL Draft

I don't understand this one. Is it a salary thing?

Who's Cory Watson? Never even heard of the guy.

He is Edmonton's problem now. Hated the move when we made it and while we give up a 2nd too at least we get something back besides a long-snapper. YAWNNNNN

Lemar Durant's tweets the night of draft showed disrespect of the CFL and the process. Diva is an understatement. Even the Ti-Cats beat reporter tweeted just unfollowed Lemar Durant. Have fun with this guy in Calgary Stamps fans.
