Time Out – June 12

Joe McGrath has had a change of heart.

Back to Edmonton

Joe McGrath has had a change of heart. The Saskatchewan Roughriders traded the non-import offensive lineman to the Edmonton Eskimos on Thursday, granting the six-year veteran a request to return to his former team. In return for McGrath, Saskatchewan acquires Edmonton’s first round pick at the 2010 Canadian Football League draft and a player off the Eskimos’ negotiation list. McGrath, a native of Moose Jaw, Sask., originally signed a two-year deal plus an option with the Roughriders on February 16. “A few days ago, Joe approached us saying he was having a case of buyer’s remorse,” said Roughriders head coach Ken Miller. “He apologized profusely, but said, for a combination of personal and professional reasons, he wanted to return to the Eskimos.”
