...an excerpt...Barrett, meanwhile, said he's in no rush to leave the Bulls, but did open the door to returning to the CFL some day.
"[In the U.S.] there's 119 Division I programs, so
if the right opportunity came along [in U.S. college]
or the CFL, I would certainly consider that," he said.
"I do miss the CFL."
