Dressler's contract with the Saskatchewan Roughriders of the Canadian Football League is expiring, making the star receiver a free agent. He could re-sign with the team with which he's starred the past six seasons, sign with another CFL team, or take a shot at the NFL, as some NFL teams have reportedly expressed interest, The Bismarck Tribune reported (http://bit.ly/18ZJ5Fu ).
Dressler, 28, said he hopes to decide on his future within a month or two.
"I'm not going to guarantee anything, but I've obviously enjoyed my time playing here and playing for this organization," he said of the Roughriders, whom he helped lead to a Grey Cup championship this past season. "Really, I'm just waiting. I'm training and getting my body as healthy as I can right now."
Dressler has enjoyed a successful career north of the border. He was the CFL's rookie of the year in his first season in 2008. This past season he finished seventh in the league in receptions, sixth in receiving yards and third in receiving touchdowns. It was the fifth time in six seasons he topped the 1,000-yard receiving mark.
Dressler said that bringing a Grey Cup to the fans was a crowning achievement. Saskatchewan beat Hamilton 45-23 in the championship game last November in Regina, Saskatchewan.
"(Fans) have been through a lot. The team has been around for 100-plus years, and they've only experienced four Grey Cup victories," Dressler said. "To have a chance to bring one of those home for them, and do it on our home field, was pretty special."
