Raiders sign CFL star Sheets
Alameda, CA (SportsNetwork.com) - Former CFL standout Kory Sheets will attempt to make a successful return to the NFL, signing a contract with the Oakland Raiders on Wednesday.
Sheets, who appeared in two games with the Miami Dolphins in 2009, capped a successful two-year run with the Saskatchewan Roughriders by rushing for a Grey Cup-record 197 yards and two touchdowns en route to earning MVP honors in last November's CFL title game.
The 28-year-old finished second in the league with 1,598 rushing yards during the regular season while recording 37 catches for 264 yards.
Sheets signed with the Roughriders in 2012 and racked up 1,277 rushing yards while scoring 13 touchdowns (11 rushing, 2 receiving) that season. He added 517 yards on 49 receptions.
The Purdue product spent the entire 2010 campaign on the Dolphins' injured reserve list and was waived by Miami the following year.
