After acquiring the All-Star defensive end earlier this month, the Saskatchewan Roughriders have signed Charleston Hughes to a contract extension, keeping him with the team through the 2019 season.

The Roughriders acquired Hughes from the Hamilton Tiger-Cats in exchange for backup quarterback Vernon Adams, shortly after the Ticats acquired Hughes from the Calgary Stampeders.

The 34-year-old Hughes was named a CFL All-Star last season after finishing with 40 tackles and 11 sacks in 14 games. It was the fourth time Hughes had been named to the league's All-Star roster.

In 10 seasons in the CFL, all with the Stampeders, the Northwood product has 372 tackles and 99 sacks in 147 games.
