REGINA -- The Saskatchewan Roughriders re-signed receivers Rob Bagg and Limas Sweed on Thursday.

Bagg, a six-foot, 190-pound native of Kingston, Ont., appeared in just three games last year, registering nine catches for 69 yards before missing the remainder of the season due to injury.

The 27-year-old has played in 52 games over six seasons with the CFL club, having amassed 134 catches for 1,935 yards and eight touchdowns.

The six-foot-four, 220-pound Sweed signed with the team in October but spent the final two weeks of the season on the practice roster.

Previously, Sweed played three seasons with the Pittsburgh Steelers, registering seven catches for 69 yards. He won a Super Bowl with Pittsburgh in 2009.
