REGINA – The Saskatchewan Roughriders signed American defensive lineman Anthony Lanier II to a one-year contract extension Tuesday.

Lanier was eligible to become a free agent next month.

The six-foot-six, 285-pound Lanier saw action at both defensive end and tackle last season in 14 regular-season games last season with Saskatchewan.

He registered 19 tackles (two for loss), five sacks and a fumble recovery.

Lanier is entering his fourth season with Saskatchewan.

Before coming to Canada, Lanier spent five seasons in the NFL with Washington (2016-18), the Los Angeles Chargers (2018-20), Kansas City (2020) and New Orleans (2020).
