"We're very pleased to extend Neal's relationship with our club. In truth, he's been a Rider since 1980 when he was born here. Growing up in this province, Neal has a unique love for this franchise, and, over the past couple of years, he has certainly developed into one of our best players. Neal is so versatile: he can play both backfield positions, he catches the ball very well, and is one our best special team performers. As such, Neal will be significant factor in our future success."This site will try to make an effort to keep up with the comings and goings of CIS players now in the CFL. Former Regina Rams star Neal Hughes re-signing with Saskatchewan is no big stunner.
