Jerome Messam will be taking handoffs and catching passes from Zach Collaros in 2018.
The big, intimidating Canadian running back has signed a free agent contract with the Saskatchewan Roughriders. He made the announcement Wednesday morning through social media.
"Thank you @sskroughriders @cflsuperagent JO John Murphy & Chris Jones for another opportunity at greatness," the burly running back tweeted. "Excited to be back in #Riderville! #RiderNation #isitjuneyet."
The 32-year-old spent parts of two seasons (2014-15) with the Riders, rushing for a combined 1,208 yards and three TDs on 205 carries. Saskatchewan traded Messam to the Calgary Stampeders on Oct. 14, 2015.
Over two seasons with Calgary, Messam rushed for 2,214 yards and helped the Stampeders make consecutive Grey Cup appearances. But last week, president/GM John Hufnagel said he told the six-foot-three, 255-pound Messam to test the free-agent market.
