Josiah St. John has proven his worth to the Saskatchewan Roughriders — zero!
Since being the first overall selection in the 2016 CFL draft, St. John has been a complete bust. Other teams knew about his shortcomings and were surprised the Roughriders wasted their No. 1 choice on a player who had lost his starting job on Oklahoma University’s offensive line.
St. John was kept out of his first pro training camp by a greedy agent. When he finally signed a contract, St. John was rushed into action as an injury replacement.
He fared poorly.
Despite claims he had improved during the offseason, St. John rarely dressed for his second season. He missed all of this year’s training camp, apparently with an injury, before appearing briefly on Thursday and returning to the locker room with another injury. Even though the Roughriders are dangerously shallow along their offensive line, there’s no reason to keep someone whose career has been part holdout, part injury and part healthy scratch.
