The Saskatchewan Roughriders have signed free agent defensive end Ricky Foley.

Foley, the 2012 Grey Cup's top Canadian, joined the Toronto Argonauts as a free agent three years ago after spending his first four CFL seasons with B.C. Lions.

Foley was the league's top Canadian in 2009 with the Lions after registering 12 sacks.

Foley only had three sacks last year, in large part because he was required to do more than just rush the quarterback in defensive co-ordinator Chris Jones's scheme. Still, the 30-year-old Foley was named the top Canadian in Toronto's Grey Cup victory after registering four tackles and a sack against Calgary.
