Former Clemson WR signs with Roughriders

Former Clemson standout Jacoby Ford has signed with the Canadian Football League's Saskatchewan Roughriders according to multiple reports.

For his NFL career, Ford has 57 receptions for 848 yards and three receiving touchdowns and also has four kickoff return touchdowns.

At Clemson, Ford and C.J. Spiller became the greatest all-purpose duo in NCAA history. Ford had 49 punt returns for 479 yards and two touchdowns and 47 kickoff returns for 1,124 yards and a score. Ford also had 143 catches for 1,986 yards with 16 touchdowns in 48 games at Clemson.

The 30-year old was also the 60 meters indoor NCAA Championship in track during his college days.

Ford was drafted by the Raiders in the 4th round of the 2010 NFL draft (108th overall) after showcasing his insane 4.28-second 40-yard dash at the NFL combine.

Former Clemson defensive back Crezdon Butler is also a member of the Roughriders squad.
