Canadian Football League's Saskatchewan Roughriders announced on Thursday that the team has signed former Clemson receiver Jacoby Ford.

Ford spent seven weeks on the Roughriders' practice squad last season after signing in September. He also had stints with the Edmonton Eskimos and Montreal Alouettes in 2016.

For his NFL career (38 games), Ford had 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.
