Defensive lineman Alex Hall was traded to Saskatchewan on Sunday, dramatically improving the Roughriders’ pass rush.

Saskatchewan gets Hall and a 2014 second-round draft pick from the Winnipeg Blue Bombers in exchange for non-import offensive lineman Patrick Neufield and a 2015 fourth-round pick.

The six-foot-six, 256-pound Hall leads the league with 15 sacks. He also has 31 defensive tackles in 13 regular season games.
