Former Roughriders running back Kory Sheets Tweeted a cryptic message on Thursday.
It appears he’s reached out to the Saskatchewan Roughriders regarding a comeback but was rejected.
@Sheets24K: “So they say they don’t want me back as a Rider. What to do, where to go? #cfl”
Sheets set a Grey Cup rushing record with 197 yards in Saskatchewan’s 45-23 win over Hamilton in the 2013 Grey Cup and signed with the NFL’s Oakland Raiders for 2014. However a ruptured Achilles tendon in a preseason game against Green Bay ended his season and he hasn’t played since.
The Riders said this afternoon they met with Sheets this off-season and “chatted” but upon doing some research on his injury history and off-field problems, they aren’t interested in signing him to a contract.
