REGINA - The Saskatchewan Roughriders signed defensive lineman John Chick to a contract extension Thursday that will keep him with the CFL club through 2016 season.

The six-foot-four, 250-pound Chick is entering his sixth season with Saskatchewan.

Chick had a CFL-high 15 sacks last year while adding a career-best 45 tackles to capture league all-star honours.

Chick, 32, has registered 42 sacks in 73 career regular-season games with Saskatchewan.

He has helped the Riders win two Grey Cup titles (2007, '13) and was the CFL's top defensive player in '09.
