Roughriders sign Doege, Swain
Regina, SK (SportsNetwork.com) - The Saskatchewan Roughriders signed quarterback Seth Doege and receiver Brett Swain on Thursday.
Doege joins the Riders following a standout career at Texas Tech University. The 25-year-old completed his collegiate career with a school-record 69 percent completion rate while ranking second all-time in school passing yards with 8,646 and touchdown passes with 69. He finished his 2012 senior season second in NCAA touchdown passes with 39 and passing yards with 4,215, while being named the Meineke Car Care Bowl Most Valuable Player.
Last year, Doege attended training camp with the Atlanta Falcons after originally signing with the team as an undrafted free agent in April 2013. He spent the season with the Falcons' practice squad.
Swain is a veteran of six NFL seasons after originally being selected in the seventh round (217th overall) by the Green Bay Packers during the 2008 draft.
The California native spent three years with Green Bay -- playing in the Packers' 2010 Super Bowl XLV win -- before joining the San Francisco 49ers for 2011 and signing with the Seattle Seahawks prior to the 2013 season.
In 27 career regular season games he totaled eight receptions for 87 yards.
