Terrelle Pryor, CFL's Saskatchewan Roughriders In Contact, According To Report

The NFL Supplemental Draft isn't the only career option for departing Ohio St. Buckeyes QB Terrelle PryorThere's the UFL, but at least one Canadian Football League team would like a word, having obtained Pryor's CFL negotiating rights. 

According to an Associated Press report, Saskatchewan Roughriders general manager Brendan Taman and Pryor's lawyer Larry James have been in touch, with Taman saying he thinks of Pryor as a quarterback first.

Though playing in Canada for a season probably wasn't ever Pryor's dream, the chance to start for a pro team as a quarterback is one that shouldn't be overlooked. He's not likely to have a chance to compete for very much playing time in the hypothetical 2011 NFL season, especially since he'd have even less time than any of the quarterbacks picked in the NFL Draft to acclimate to his new team.

Ricky Williams made his way back into the NFL after playing in Canada, so it's not like the borders would close behind Pryor if he took a trip north.
