The Saskatchewan Roughriders have signed American defensive back Nick Marshall to a one-year contract extension.

Marshall returns for a third season after recording five tackles, five interceptions, one touchdown and one fumble recovery last season.

Marshall was a quarterback in the college ranks at Auburn, leading the Tigers to an appearance in the national championship game in 2014.

Marshall switched to defensive back before entering the pro ranks. He spent time with the NFL’s Jacksonville Jaguars and New York Jets and the Indoor Football League’s Arizona Rattlers before entering the CFL.
