COLUMBUS, OHIO (KDKA/AP) — Could Terrelle Pryor be heading to Canada?

According to the AP, the Saskatchewan Roughriders acquired negotiating rights to Pryor and have made contact with him about joining the Canadian Football League.

On Tuesday, Pryor released a statement from his attorney saying he would not return to Ohio State for his senior season where he was quarterback.

Roughriders general manager Brendan Taman told The Associated Press on Wednesday that the team has talked to Pryor’s lawyer, Larry James. According to Taman, James told the Roughriders that Pryor would need until next week to consider the situation.

Taman said Pryor is being looked at by the Roughriders strictly as a quarterback. Pryor could also enter next year’s NFL draft or a supplemental draft this summer.
