The Kansas City Chiefs on Monday announced the departure of WR Weston Dressler, who has quickly made up his mind on his next step. The CFL's Saskatchewan Roughriders announced that Dressler has decided to return to the Roughriders.

Dressler was a star in the CFL ever since going undrafted in the NFL in 2008. The headline in the TSN report calls him a "fan-favourite", which accurately describes how the city feels about him.

The Chiefs signed him last March and since then I've done talked about his progress on various radio stations in Canada. The excitement over his NFL bid was very high.

Unfortunately for Dressler, it became pretty apparent by the time training camp arrived that he was firmly on the roster bubble.  He never quite cracked the first or second team during workouts. When he hardly played in the Chiefs preseason games, it sealed his fate.

Dressler is just 29 years old so he may have some good football years ahead of him in the CFL.
