Even shinning the pines he'll make big bucks. :cowboy:

Is this saying NFL teams are allowed to "tamper" with CFL players, still under contract, while other CFL teams are not?

Both Sheets and Dressler were granted permission by the Riders to tryout for NFL teams.
Sheets is on a tryout with Oakland right now.

[b]The Green Zone can now confirm that the Raiders have been granted permission by the Saskatchewan Roughriders to take a look at the Grey Cup MVP.

This is the second known work out for Sheets in the NFL this off season , he previously worked out for the Indianapolis Colts in December.

Sheets isn't the only Rider to have interest from NFL teams, receiver Weston Dressler has also worked out for the Kansas City Chiefs, while punter Ricky Schmitt was being looked at by the Buffalo Bills.[/b]

All are set to become a free agents on February 15th.

Thanks Grover. I wasn't aware of that but have now done some googling and learned that the Chiefs asked for the Roughriders'
permission (the only team to do so in Dressler's case) and that Dressler, with a contract offer from KC, asked Taman for his early release.
