REGINA -- Reggie Hunt is leaving the CFL the same way he came in -- as a member of the Saskatchewan Roughriders.
The veteran linebacker signed a one-day deal with the club Wednesday and will retire as a Roughrider.
Hunt spent six seasons with the Roughriders (2002-2007) before leaving to sign as a free agent with the Montreal Alouettes and Edmonton Eskimos.
"Reggie was very athletic, made big plays and was always all over the field," Riders' defensive co-ordinator Richie Hall said in a statement. "He was very quiet and caring off the field and had a great sense of humour."
Hunt appeared in 106 regular-season games with Saskatchewan, registering 497 total tackles (452 defensive, 45 special teams), 27 sacks, eight fumble returns, seven forced fumbles and five interceptions.
Hunt was a four-time West Division all-star and named a league-all-star in '07, the same year he helped Saskatchewan capture a Grey Cup title.
