REGINA — Receiver Jordan Williams-Lambert is returning to the Saskatchewan Roughriders.

The six-foot-three, 228-pound Ball State graduate was the CFL West’s rookie of the year last season after making 62 catches for 764 yards and four touchdowns.

Williams-Lambert, 25, had five receptions for 49 yards in three pre-season games with Chicago.
