TORONTO -- Dwight Anderson did a lot of watching at his first practice with the Toronto Argonauts.

Anderson joined the Argos on Tuesday, a day after the CFL club acquired the veteran defensive back from the Saskatchewan Roughriders for a conditional 2015 draft pick.

Anderson spent much of practice -- which was cut short by thunder and rain -- watching the Argos' defence while talking with head coach Scott Milanovich, defensive co-ordinator Tim Burke and defensive backs coach Eddie Brown.

Anderson celebrated his 33rd birthday Saturday, playing in the Riders' 48-15 loss to Toronto at Rogers Centre.

Anderson is in his eighth CFL season, having played previously for Hamilton, Calgary, Montreal and Saskatchewan.

A two-time Grey Cup champion with Calgary ('08) and Roughriders ('13), Anderson has twice been a league all-star and four times a divisional all-star.
