The Concordia coaching staff acknowledges Cory as one of the hardest working athletes to ever wear a Stinger’s uniform. At 6/2", 235 pounds he is doing 23 reps x225 pounds on the bench, possesses a vertical leap of 39 inches and runs a sub 4.60 40-yards. In 2009 Cory was named a CIS all-Canadian, and is the recipient of the President’s Trophy for the CIS Outstanding Defensive Player. He is rated as the top CIS prospect going into the 2010 CFL entry draft. (via limestonegrenadiersfootball.org
Word on the street is that the Kansas City Chiefs have offered a contract to UDFA LB Cory Greenwood, according to Canadian sports anchor Arash Madani. Don't get confused - the Chiefs already have a DE Bobby Greenwood on the roster. C. Greenwood is the 6'2", 233 linebacker out of the University of Concordia.
Madani was tweeting out some info right after the draft about a few CFL players that NFL teams were looking at so I'm assuming he's in the know a bit. Madan said via his Twitter account.
"[Toronto] Argos 1st rd draft pick Cory Greenwood (3rd overall) has been offered a contract by NFL's KC Chiefs. Worked out today. He'll sign deal tmrw."
The Chiefs were rumored to be negotiating with Greenwood hours after the NFL draft but he never attended a try out or mini-camp.
The usual caveat applies - It's Twitter. So we'll wait and see to make sure but I think Madani is probably right here. Also, as I'm writing this, The Winnipeg press is reporting the same thing. The third overall is in reference to the CFL draft. Greenwood was drafted #3 overall by the Argonauts in early May, after a college career at the University of Concordia.
If signed, Greenwood will be the 86th player on the roster. Three players were signed earlier today.
